Planning submitted to turn old bank into a restaurant

Tue, 10 Feb 2015

Two empty buildings in Douglas could be turned into new eateries if planning is approved.

Applications are currently under consideration to transform an old bank and a clothes store - creating new jobs in the process.

A change of use application has been submitted for the NatWest bank on Prospect Hill with plans to turn the registered building into offices and a café restaurant and bar.

It would be open from 8am to 12am - subject to an alcohol licence being granted - and could create 12 part and full time jobs.

In addition the former Topshop store on Duke Street could become an "upscale" Chinese restaurant serving 200 meals a day.

Planning is currently pending consideration to create a two-floor establishment which would be open from Monday to Sunday - employing 15 people.
