Future development of brownfield sites at heart of new DfE consultancy

The report promises five recommendations

Future development of unoccupied urban sites in the Isle of Man is at the heart of a new consultancy report by the Department for Enterprise.

Following Tynwald approval, the report looks into urban development agency models and has come up with five key recommendations:

- Establish a development agency that is autonomous, in corporate form, and accountable through transparency and trust.

- Provide the development agency with sufficient powers to achieve its strategic goals, set within an agreed master plan.

- Identify strategic redevelopment areas and provide the framework to deliver cost neutral development outcomes.

- Establish and maintain a flexible fiscal and funding environment in which development is economically viable.

- Coordinate multi-agency and government initiatives to maintain economic development.
