Support for onshore wind farm and free buses

Around four in five Island people would support onshore wind generation and bringing in free bus services.

That's according to findings published from the government consultation on a new Climate Change Mitigation Strategy to run from next year until 2030.

Other findings included 93 per cent of people being in favour of changing public behaviour through long-term awareness initiatives and 77 per cent supported phasing out the sale of petrol and diesel cars.

The responsed from residents are being used to assist in creating a government climate change action plan which is hoped to go before Tynwald in January 2020.

1,029 people responded to the survey which ran between March and May this year.
