Ramsey Courthouse For Sale


Douglas Prom

Recommended Posts

It's an ideal site for a business...which Ramsey needs a lot more of. Or an ideal place to move a large government dept out of Douglas.

 

There's other places available suitable for the community.

 

Short-sighted IMO. But being short-sighted is an advantage if you live in Ramsey.

Putting a stage and seating in would be expensive and not really pay its way.

some steeldeck and a dozen pars would hardly break the bank....

That's not a theatre. That's a disco.

ideal for pole dancing then......

You really want to see them polish builders dance, it probably won't be as exciting as you are thinking mind you if they put some acrylic nails on eh.

One of the biggest problems these days is that Ramsey is at saturation point with bars and cafes, and opening a specialist shop in such a small town is unwise. Why pay rent and then stand about waiting for customers all day when you can run the business online from home.

 

That leaves the options of:-

Offices.

Data centre.

Casino.

This changes things quite substantially. You can't sell the war memorial land and all that nice open area expanse to a private developer.

 

 

You are right. However, this could easily be carved out of the sale or you could insist on covenants in the sale documents that obligate a purchaser to maintain the grounds for the benefit of the public. That is likely to put prospective buyers off so I would go with carving it out of the sale.
