Displaying items by tag: King Edward VIII pier

A planning application submitted by the Isle of Man Government's Department of Infrastructure (DoI) to improve Douglas Harbour is an important development according to the Minister.

It's for a marine dolphin and footbridge on King Edward VIII pier, and would include installing a mooring platform and mooring bollard.

Additional work not included in the plans will also be carried out which doesn't need approval by the planning board.

Chris Thomas says the work will improve the harbour in bad weather especially, and explains what marine dolphins are: (according to Manx Radio's audio clip that includes reference to newbuild ferry Manxman due in 2023).  

The Minister added that the application has been put together in consultation with the Isle of Man Steam Packet, and more details will be given to Tynwald members and the public in September.

The Steam Packet has declined our invitation to comment.
