New Ramsey Floodplain Development

Judging from the proposed design of the building in this picture from the 3FM News site article today, it looks as though the developers "lack confidence" that the land won't flood in the future...?

If you had an electric car where would you plug it in?    It is ok if you have a driveway but if you live in a terraced house could be hassle.

Plug it in next to the electric boat...

Who's actually behind this? There seems to be no entity by this name

Who's Merrion? https://merrionstrategy.com/

The architects are shown as

BACA Architects,
Unit 1, 199 Long Ln,
London SE1 4PN

Elsewhere on the Internet you will find only references to: Apartment x, Calico House, 199, Long Lane, Waterloo, London, SE1 4PN

This kind of disingenuousness gives me a bad feeling.

Don't forget the micro forest.

I find it hard to believe that Manx Wildlife Trust is supporting the micro forest ! It must be some forest for them to overlook the thousands of tons of concrete going onto a floodplain habitat ! 

Judging by the behaviour of developers it'll end up being a few saplings on a piece of land covered in dog shit next to a spar !!

Just the trees they need to work on, it's already covered in dog shit courtesy of being the exercise area for Pondy hounds 😂

Just curious, assuming the cries of 'we need more affordable housing*' are true and people want to remain in Ramsey or move there, where exactly are those houses meant to go?

*Houses people want to buy or invest in (not talking social housing here)

Somewhere that is effectively waste land, close to town centre yet tucked out of sight behind an industrial estate with amenities like the schools within walking distance? None of the dwellings are close to the river where there seems to be a lot of green space left with mature trees on the plan being kept if you compare it to a satellite photo.

How is this any different to Royal Park built on green field site on the edge of town with no local shops or amenties within easy walking distance or any schools nearby?

After all, development was permitted further up the river at Auldyn and that is the same type of land (i.e. low lying near the river).

Or maybe we could follow Dan the man into the Crossags. At least they own the land they will be building on.  

Maybe it's time we encouraged developers other than the usual suspects. Might just shake things up a bit. No need for bypasses with roundabouts big enough to put a house on or land swaps like Lake Road (still undeveloped) to sweeten the deal.

Most likely a small practice working out of a home office. Though Apartment X has a certain nefarious ring to it. Could Ramsey be getting it's very own supervillian? After all Mr Longworth seems to have Douglas sewn up (or is that stiched up?).

Micro Forest is on a different estate (Royal Park not the one proposed for the floodplain)
