Town hall bosses in Douglas want to spend £17m of public money to renovate parts of the Willaston estate.
The five-year project will include 215 properties, the demolition of the estate’s police station site and the adjacent block of flats, which will be redeveloped into a new sheltered housing complex.
If approved, a total of £43,779 will be spent on improving each council house in the scheme.
