Castletown Road sites to be returned to nature

Thu, 27 Jun 2019

Manx Utilities have begun work on the demolition of White Hoe and Ivy Cottages on the Castletown Road with the land being returned to nature.
The cottages were purchased by the Isle of Man Government in 2008 following issues with vibration and noise caused by the White Hoe IRIS pumping station.

Manx Utilities are in discussions with the Manx Wildlife Trust to determine how best to sympathetically landscape the sites taking into account the local environment.
The first phase of the works to remove asbestos material commenced on Monday.

Demolition works expected to take several weeks.
