Waterfall Hotel does not meet building protection criteria says DEFA

Mon, 11 Oct 2021

The Waterfall Hotel will not be added to the Isle of Man’s protected building register (PBR).

The building in Glen Maye had been issued a Building Preservation Notice (BPN) in June which temporarily protected it from demolition while further investigations were undertaken.

The investigations by the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture (DEFA) concluded that the building did not demonstrate the special architectural interest required, either through its rarity or aesthetic merit, or special historical interest representing an important aspect of the Nation’s history.

The 1860s building has been subject to several planning applications with the most recent, which is under appeal, looking to knock it down and replace it with four terraced houses.
