Over a million for prom consultants

Work due to start in September


More than £1 million has been spent on consultancy fees for the Douglas promenade regeneration scheme.

Figures released via a freedom of information request show five parties have received £1,097,292 to date from the Department of Infrastructure.

It's expected that amount will go up to  £2.2 million pounds once all the projected consultancy fees have been paid out.

This spending covers work on project management, rail design and planning supervision and comes from the Department's £25 million pound budget for the scheme.

Reconstruction of the promenade is due to get underway in September and is expected to take three years to complete.
