Plans have been submitted for a motor museum to house and display classic vehicles at Jurby industrial estate.
Denis and Darren Cunningham have applied (14/00343/B) for the development, which if approved, is expected to accommodate 30,000 visitors per year.
They own a ‘large and continually expanding collection of vehicles’ they want to make available to the public.
The museum would house and display classic vehicles including cars, motorcycles, trucks, fire engines, buses ‘and more from all eras and from around the world’.
As well as the museum, there would be a workshop for restoring vehicles, coffee kiosk, gift shop and customer and staff facilities.
Jobs would be created for at least 10 people.
Schools and classic vehicles would be encouraged to visit the museum, as well as visiting coach tours and clubs.
The plan includes parking provision, junction access and roadway.
As the site is owned by the Department of Infrastructure, the application will be referred to the Council of Ministers.
