The Cosy Nook Cafe Port Erin


Recommended Posts

Well the Cosy Nook has officially been added to the protected buildings register so a shitty derelict cottage partially obscured by a cheaply constructed serving hatch and a toilet block will be here for years to come.

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

It has no value due to its state. Site value only. It’s no longer fit for purpose as catering premises. However it’ll increase the cost of any work required and make planning/registered building conse

Excellent post.

Does anyone think that if the plans for it's replacement weren't so over the top and were instead more along the lines of knock it down and build a new place on a similar footprint doing a similar thing that this would have been listed?

Ridiculous!! Walked round the area a couple of weeks ago & I’d say it’s an eyesore & should be demolished.

so that building will be lying derelict for a few more years

They should take the petition from last year and hold a raffle for the signatorys. Winner gets to swap their house for the Cozy Nook, no money changes hands.

Best case scenario is someone who can't get on  the housing ladder gets somewhere to live and Port Erin loses an eyesore and a rates burden.

Worst case scenario someone with a massive property out of the village gets to live in the "iconic" location they couldn't bare to see destroyed and Port Erin commissioners get an expensive property to sell.

Don't forget the Douglas Trafalgar and the Kirk Michael Mitre now officially added too.

I'm pleased the Cosy Nook has been saved , pity that the Commissioners contrived to encourage it to becoming derelict . Many people were saying that the old Murray's Museum  should have been demolished , I would recommend a visit to see what can be achieved . Just saying.

Would being listed prevent a restrictive covenant being placed on the building in the future? Too late for the Traf off course, but the Mitre must have had some approving looks from developers while H&B have almost certainly considered getting rid.

There's an opportunity now - planning permitting - for a contemporary architectural reinterpretation of the site

Hope PE Commissioners will take it

Where do you live banker?

Kirk Michael gets glorious sunsets and has a huge sandy beach, as well as having the advantage of not being anywhere near Douglas. I wouldn't have a problem living there.

The island has lost the plot, WTF has that pile of rubble got that makes it worth protecting?

Zero but like a lot of things over here, massively worse because of social media, politicians run scared of a few, and I mean a few loud voices bleating.

The political system here has never been good at getting anything done, no political party's to blame things on so any difficult decisions are directly held against the MHK.

This makes re election subject to keeping all the people happy all the time and as we know you cant do that but we end up with MHKs trying to do it and we get stupid decisions like this.

A very nice position in Braddan within walking distance to pubs & Douglas if required. Still think KM is a dump!!
