Plans for £ 40million to develop an entirely new site in Ramsey have been unveiled.

The “Sulby Riverside” site is located at Ballachrink Farm in the center of town.

It is bordered by the Poyll Dooey Nature Reserve to the north, the recent development of Auldyn Meadow to the west, and the Northern Delivery Office to the south.

Plans were submitted to Ramsey Town Commissioners in June of this year and were greeted with enthusiasm by the previous council.

Current members have yet to review the plans.

City planner Richard Coutts says the location of the area means environmental issues have been at the center of attention.

Developer Nathan Church sees the project as an opportunity to boost the local economy and increase Ramsey’s appeal as a place to live, work and visit.

He said: “One of the things that drew us to the location was the fact that it connects the city center to the emerging communities beyond Gardeners’ Lane to the west.

“Our consultants were able to show that the existing local infrastructure and road network will cope with the additional demands with the added benefit that the new main access road will relieve Gardeners Lane during the annual Isle of Man TT.

Ramsey MHK Dr Alex Allinson says he is eager to see how the project unfolds:
