Someone does care and has been caring since 1938 about Manx planning.

 

The Society for the Preservation of the Manx Countryside & Environment, of which I am Chairman, submits observations to DOLGE on about 20 applications each week. My planning sub-committee says on this one:

 

"This would mean that Derbyhaven becomes a satellite village to Castletown. It is not usually considered good planning to create a new or enlarged settlement which relies on just one road access or is situated immediately adjacent to an airport. The idea was certainly not promulgated when considering the local plan.

 

Thus on both zoning and common sense grounds we feel it necessary to OPPOSE this application. It also represents development along the coastline, similarly contrary to Policy."

 

 

We have raised no objection the the Douglas development of cinema etc on planning grounds.

 

If anyone has any observation to make they should write to the Secretary of the Planning Committee, DOLGE, Mount Havelock, Douglas.

 

All applications now will be discussed in public. There is no longer a Review stage but there is an Appeal if necessary.

Seventeen isn't exactly a large number. Is it your golf course? |What's the problem? I'd rather they built on expensive golf courses rather than building on open fields and woodland. Who gives a shit about what the members think?

 

How much for a house?

I'm getting to like you Mr Flynn. :D

 

It so welcoming to see a person with political knowledge have the courage to come on an open forum. Maybe the ones in power aren't bothered or haven't got the bottle but anyway, I take my hat off to you for taking the time.

Mr Lacey seems to have a fascination with other bits of land which stick out into the sea !

take a look at web-site Oliver's Guide to Cornwall/miscellanea about Land's End / Graham Ferguson Lacey :-

 

quote:-

 

"It is difficult to find words to express the shame for what has been done to Land's End. Both Jane and I remember it from our childhood as a place of magic with an end-of-the-world feeling, the only human intervention a small hotel and a tearoom. Then in 1981 Welsh entrepreneur David Goldstone outbid the National Trust for the estate. He sold on to the mysterious Peter de Savary (Skibo Castle, Bovey Castle and Caribbean resorts) in 1987. De Savary bought John o'Groats in 1989 but then got into financial trouble and sold both in 1991 to Isle of Man entrepreneur Graham Ferguson Lacey. Now the hotel has been greatly extended and vulgarised and a small and tatty theme park introduced to separate the visitor from his money. Much of the clifftop is roped off and inaccessible. And even the famed direction sign (New York 3147 miles) is subject to a fee if you want to be pictured by it. What a sad place it is now!

 

Is this what we want for Langness and the Castletown golf course and Derbyhaven beach????

A businessman maximising the income from his investments. Whoever would have thought of such a thing! :o

He didn't buy the view.

 

The point is that if there are insufficient or weak controls then this type of tacky development spreads and just spoils everything. By all means go ahead and waste your money on a load of old tat but don't expect others not to criticise your support for monuments to bad taste.
