Are there any other shitholes we can look to get registered just for a laugh?

Where's the guns? There's things like that on the Normandy coast and the Channel Islands. And Jurby.

The existing structure is a worthless pile of bastardized crap. It’s in a shit state and is a particularly inappropriate food outlet. It has no heritage or architectural substance. The attempt to ‘sav

I was being sarcastic when I referred to the upper Prom as being ugly. I have not an oppostition to the replacements, that is what would currently be required.

Are these apartments fully occupied ? Has it to been a viable conversion? I don't know! Has PE  benifited from these appartments? I don't know!

These are private developments, the Cosy Nook is a PE. owned development and they are not revealing the quids involved in the re-build and without that, a true assessment of the development proposed cannot be made by those who would consider the ratepayers long term cost of the proposed development!

A former beachside café and a Victorian pub are among three Isle of Man buildings being considered for inclusion to a list of the Island’s registered buildings.

The Cosy Nook in Port Erin, Trafalgar House in Douglas and the Mitre in Kirk Michael were all issued with Proposal to Register Notices (PRN) on Monday, due to their potential special architectural or historical interest.

A three week consultation for each building will now be used to gather further information with a final decision made soon after.

One fallout of the coronavirus pandemic is that European style outdoor eating is predicted to remain in vogue for some years

 

Not a problem. Anytime I visited the Isle of Man, I always enjoyed outdoor eating in places such as the Min-Y-Don cafe and the veranda cafe in the Villa marina theatre in addition to The Cosy Nook.

Personally I don’t think any of the buildings are great architecture that need saving & certainly not the cosy nook cafe !

Buildings aren't only registered because they are 'great architecture' but also if they have historic associations or are interesting or are a rare example of their kind or contribute to the environment of their area in some special way.  No doubt one day someone will register the last Dandara house that hasn't fallen to bits.

The trouble with architectural discussions on Manx Forums is that they always consist of people saying "We should knock down these old buildings and build something shiny and modern".  Which happens and then, several years later, the same people are complaining that the place looks like a shithole with no character.

Fair enough. But don't you think we have plenty other " have historic associations or are interesting or are a rare example of their kind or contribute to the environment of their area in some special way" that are not occupying a prime beachfront location that is ideal for a new (and actually useful) building to the benefit of the local economy.

Hey, maybe they could move it. Everybody could be happy
