Isle of Man regeneration 'will revitalise Ramsey'

Regeneration in the north of the island will revitalise the town of Ramsey, according to the government.

The government said the aim of first phase, which will be completed by mid October, was to improve pedestrian access in the town centre.

New paving and street lighting has been installed and a parking review is under way.

Chairman of Ramsey Regeneration Committee, Allan Bell, said the changes would revitalise the heart of the town.

He added: "Car parking is a key issue for the town and I welcome the additional parking on West Quay prior to the commencement of regeneration work on Parliament Street next year."

The planning application for the second phase of Ramsey's regeneration is being assessed.

The proposals centre around improvements in the Courthouse and Market Place areas.
