Plans for new residential home in Ramsey

The proposed complex would cost £12.75m and see the current building demolished

Plans have been submitted for a new, state of the art residential home in the north of the Island.

The proposed £12.75 million complex would be built on land at Cooil ny Marrey on Waterloo Road, Ramsey, and would be a replacement for the current Cummal Mooar building on Queens Promenade.

The plans have been made possible by a land swap agreement with the Ramsey and Northern Districts Housing committee, and represent a collaboration between Manx Care, the Government and local authorities in the area.

The proposals would see the current Cooil ny Marrey building demolished. Residents of the sheltered housing facility have been moved to the housing authority's new site at 'Mayfield' on May Hill in Ramsey.

The intention is for the Cummal Mooar facility to remain fully operational throughout the build phase. The new home will accommodate 45 en-suite rooms providing residents with a comfortable home from home environment, tailored to their specific clinical needs.
