The Department of Infrastructure is applying for planning permission (22/00909/B) to build a small extension onto the King Edward VIII pier in Douglas harbour.

Plans are to add a mooring platform to the pier, which currently serves as the docking point for the Steam Packet’s Ben-My-Chree.

It is understood that the addition is to facilitate the berthing of the Steam Packet’s new ferry Manxman, which is set to enter service next year.

A pile will be driven into the seabed to form the platform, which will extend the pier out by 10 metres into the sea. It will also include a steel footbridge to allow staff access from the pier.

The Manxman will also require the installation of three new mooring bollards and modification to the fenders.
