Heritage Homes has submitted plans to replace the former Royal Hotel on Port Erin promenade with 34 flats.
The redevelopment (14/00893/B) of the Victorian building would comprise a mixture of one, two and three bedroom flats, aimed at making the most of the view over the bay through the installation of large windows and balconies on the front of the building.
In the design statement it says the facades are a ‘contemporary interpretation’ of the seaside architecture that can be seen along the promenade.
It continues: ‘To the west the scale of the proposed development is critical in how it contributes to the seaside facade.
‘The proposals follow the same heights of the adjoining buildings and do not dominate the skyline.’
The main access vehicular would be from the promenade into a basement car park with further external parking accessed through the basement,
A total of 45 parking spaces would be provided.
Pedestrian access to a private landscaped courtyard would be off Rowany Villas and there would be pedestrian access off Maine Road.
The hotel has been disused since 2008, and approval in principle was granted the next year to Heritage Homes to redevelop the site for residential use.
This consent lapsed in 2011.
