Swing bridge will not go to Douglas Council

An iconic landmark in Douglas will not be taken over by its local authority.

The Department of Infrastructure offered the Swing-Bridge Tower on South Quay to Douglas Council for a nominal fee.

Members decided against the move after concerns were raised about the amount it would cost to redevelop the tower.

Council Leader David Christian says they couldn't justify the costs to the ratepayers.
