Public meeting on plans for £6 million sports complex at KWC

Event takes place next Wednesday at Castletown Civic Centre

Castletown residents will be given a chance to question those behind plans to build a £6 million sports centre at King William's College.

A public meeting is due to be held next Wednesday (13 November) at the town's civic centre from 7pm. 

Douglas North MHK Ralph Peake, Castletown Commissioner David Parnell, and businessman Roger Raatgever are behind the initiative.

They're seeking approval in principle for the 50-metre pool, indoor running track, gym, cafe and five retail units in fields at the private school.

It's said the complex would be managed by a commercial operator, which would seek to make a profit from gym memberships, and the shops.

Castletown Commissioners have chosen not to comment on the proposals until the public meeting has been held.
