Tracey Bell has been refused planning approval for a dental surgery in Castletown.
Her application (14/00647/B)for alterations and an extension to the shop at 12 Malew Street, and to convert it to a dental surgery, was turned down by planners.
The decision notice states: ‘The proposed extension, by reason of its flat roof design, would result in an unattractive and incongruous addition which would be harmful to the Conservation Area and perception of views from the castle.’
The plans showed there would be a reception and waiting area, three surgeries, an X-ray room and staff area on the ground floor.
It was anticipated that there would be eight full-time members of staff employed.
