Plans have been submitted to turn a lawned area at the Villa Marina Gardens into an overflow car park for the Douglas venue.
The Department of Infrastructure’s application (14/007198/B) states that the site – near the bowling green – would be re-levelled, and the grass replaced with hardstanding.
A total of 42 parking spaces would be created.
Access to the overflow car park would be from Derby Square Lane by part demolition of a wall.
Traffic would be directed along the lane to a junction on to Derby Road.
The DoI’s highways division has examined the drawings and has no objection to the proposals.
As it is a department application, it will be referred to the Council of Ministers for determination.
