A total of 30 homes can be built on the former gas works site in Ramsey, government planners have ruled.
Haven Homes Limited’s application (13/91461/B) was approved to demolish redundant gas works structures, build 30 homes with associated roads and parking, and re-clad the existing commercial building.
There will be six two bedrroom, 14 three bedroom and 10 four bedroom houses, all in terraced form on the brownfield site.
Access will be from North Shore Road, which passes through new public amenity space before dividing into two small cul-de-sacs.
There will also be a children’s play area,
Planners attached a number of conditions to the approval.
Development can’t start site until a hard and soft landscaping scheme, has been approved by planners.
A method statement, including details on the phasing of provision of public open spaces and the phasing and siting of any construction compound, also needs written approval.
Meanwhile the planning and building control division needs to approve details of the programme of access which will be given to a named archaeologist to ‘observe and record all ground disturbance during construction’.
In the application it said: ‘By the regeneration of a redundant, industrial, brownfield site close to the centre of Ramsey this proposal satisfies many, if not all, of the over-arching sustainable requirements of the Isle of Man Strategic Plan and the requirements of the Ramsey Local Plan.
