Homeowners in the island have until March 12 to register their properties for the Homestay scheme. The scheme provides an opportunity to host paying visitors who come over during the TT races and the Isle of Man Festival of Motorcycling weeks. Link to iomonline.co.im article.
Following severe delays and cancellations during last year’s TT races, organisers have made back-up plans for this year.
The Department for Enterprise (DfE) is consulting with the public on adding extra practice sessions, should they be required to the 2018 TT schedule.
The Department for Enterprise has issued a consultation on possible changes to the Island’s tourism legislation.
The consultation will review the existing tourism legislation in the Isle of Man and seek the views of interested parties on possible changes. The objective is to ensure up-to-date legislation which encourages and supports the tourist industry as part of the modern economy of the Island.
The consultation includes questions regarding the statutory registration of visitor accommodation, the grading of visitor accommodation and the Department’s powers for data collection and promotion.
