Nonsense

OK, what is there to attract families to come to the island let alone in the sort of numbers that would make a difference?

The steam railway? The MER? Snaefell railway? Laxey wheel? Tynwald hill? Peel Castle? Castletown? The Horse Trams?

Err, no.

Where's the all season all weather resort for starters?  The one stop resort with fancy pools, note polls and fancy.  The indoor colocated entertainment? Where's the purpose built accommodation?  Where's the inexpensive link to the mainland? 

Sorry, the idea that the island could be anything like a modern vacation resort entirely misses the point and what people demand of a modern vacation resort let alone a top rank vacation resort such as Centre Parcs provide.

It's a well established fact that providing something and expecting people to change their demands to comply with what you're offering stands virtually SFA chance of success whereas offering what people have demonstrated is what they want at least gets you off the starting blocks.  Then all you've got to do is ADD a reason for them to buy from you.

A start would be an Eden Project type garden on the site of the old Summerland site.    I would actually get on a horse tram to go and see that.

That's one of the things when ones got fists like a bunch of bananas combined within Peripheral neuropathy.  Then throw in an over keen spell check and you get --- Rog-posts!

About 15 years ago I was involved in some "discussions" regarding a Center Parcs facility on the Island. I was very skeptical of the person promoting the idea and contacted Central Parcs directly, they very bluntly said that they could not see the Isle of Man being economically viable for them.

such a big hitter....

The island does NOT have the facilities of a CP resort. It really doesn't.

I agree

Provision of more family affordable self-catering accommodation should be encouraged, especially in rural areas

The island could do with more hostel style accommodation for school groups too. Parts of Castle Rushen could surely be utilised for this

Oh gawd, here we go again.

The British Isles are an archipelago. The largest island of an archipelago is called the mainland.
