Permission sought to demolish two Strand Street shop units

Mon, 04 Jan 2016

Permission is being sought to demolish two vacant shop units in Douglas in order to create a "good quality property" which will attract a "good quality retailer".

Linnia Investments Limited wants to build a new retail outlet between on Strand Street - replacing a temporary menswear outlet, the former Homestores shop and a now demolished Chinese takeaway.

The two-storey structure would be of "modern design" - no occupier has yet been found but plans are progressing on a "speculative basis" saying they will support the regeneration of the town.

The property investment company has been trading for 25 years - it currently maintains two other premises in the area which are occupied by Mountain Warehouse and Superdrug.
