A Japanese restaurant could form the base of a major renovation for an area in Castletown.

Thomas and Karen Kirby own several premises around Parliament Square in the town and plan a large redevelopment scheme.

Their proposed development includes a Japanese restaurant in Harbour Mews,a boutique hotel, a wine bar, a deli/cafe, and tourist accommodation in some of the other properties.

The first phase of the plan would see Harbour Mews, off Parliament Square, be converted from an office to a restaurant with a self contained residential unit.

This is outlined in the planning application 19/00690/B.

The Kirbys are seeking to fit Harbour Mews out as a Japanese restaurant with a three bedroom apartment.

The restaurant would have its kitchen and dining room on the ground floor with a second seating area upstairs.

They also plan to repave the outside courtyard including tables and plants.

The apartment entrance would be on the first floor with the three bedrooms on the upper floor. Two bedrooms would be en-suite and there would be a combined kitchen and living area.

The applicants own and plan to carry out work on the former post office at Derby House, Ellan Vannin, Packet House, 3 and 4 Parliament Square, Harbour House, The Quay, which is their residence, and the Granary.

Their applicant said: ’Subject to planning approval the above properties (excluding the Granary) will form part of the overall hospitality-led re-development project.’

Describing the plan in greater detail, the Kirbys added: ’It is likely that each of the businesses will be run separately by experienced hospitality professionals.

’And all businesses within the development will collaborate when operational to maximise the use of the complex and enhance the customer experience.’

In the applications support documents, more detail for the Japanese restaurant and other plans is provided. Its name would be Kizuna and its target customers would those who look to spend about £45 per head.

The wine bar would have an ’approximate occupancy of 100’. And the boutique hotel would only be for five ’high end’ en-suite rooms.
