133 new homes proposed for Douglas

Fri, 20 Jan 2023

Plans for 133 homes to be built in Douglas have been revealed.

The Manx Development Corporation (MDC) said the project, on Westmoreland Road and Demesne Road near to the town centre, also includes public spaces and retail units.

The proposed development includes 133 dwellings, in addition to the 37 already being provided at the Former Nurses’ Home, through a mix of apartments and 3 bed townhouses.  These homes sit alongside over 20,000ft2 of office space created via the reimagining of Crookall House, which will benefit from significant refurbishment. 4 retail units and a community pavilion will also be built complementing the existing educational, health and recreational facilities already in the area.

Chair of the Board, Sean Gilbert, commented: “We are particularly delighted with how well the design for ‘Westmoreland Village’ has progressed; integrating into the existing fabric of Douglas, providing revitalisation and regeneration of the Westmoreland Road area. It is a pleasure to be able to provide new build contemporary homes that will deliver sustainable living in a town-centre location, and to reimagine another iconic Manx building in the form of Crookall House.”
