 A £20m project to create a boutique hotel and residential development on the Isle of Man is currently in the works.

The site was formerly home to the Castletown Golf Links Hotel, and since its closure in 2007, the building on Langness peninsula has remained empty.

In 2012, the site was bought for £2.5m by Fort Island Developments Ltd, part of the Dandara Group.

Now a London-based design company has won a competition to create the developments, beating off several other architects with their proposals for the site.

No plans have been publically revealed as yet, but an official planning application is expected to be submitted later this year.

In a statement, Dandara said: “Initial consultation with interested parties, including Government departments, local residents and political representatives, has revealed a desire for the site to be redeveloped at an early opportunity.

“The Area Plan for the South recognises that the site will only be redeveloped with a hotel if it is commercially viable to do so, and in order for that to be the case the hotel must be supported by residential development.”
