Capital's 'masterplan' to be explained at presentation


There's a chance to find out more about government plans to transform the Island's capital tonight.

A public presentation on the Central Douglas Masterplan will be held at the Manx Museum at 6pm.

What's termed a 'bold vision' aims to make the capital a more attractive place to visit, live and work in. 

A series of proposals for the redesign and renovation of the town - to create a more natural flow between its different areas - will be explained at tonight's meeting. 

It's hoped the private sector will be willing to invest in development projects if they're part of an over-arching upgrade scheme. 

Chair of the Central Douglas Masterplan Committee is Chris Robertshaw MHK: (play audio)  

You can give your views to the public consultation until Friday 14 November.

The consultation can be viewed on the government's website, gov.im
