Planning Application No. 18/01300/A was lodged in December to permit the demolition of the iconic and historic former Groudle Glen Hotel, and its replacement with five dwellings. The Groudle Hotel is located at the original 1893 terminus of what later became the Manx Electric Railway.
The Groudle Glen Hotel was designed by the famous Arts and Crafts architect Hugh Baillie Scott, an architect of international renown. He also designed a significant number of buildings on the Island including the much admired Castletown Police Station.
Groudle Glen is now the only major station on the MER which has not suffered major modernisation or transformation beyond recognition.
Objectors to the scheme significantly include the Isle of Man Victorian Society and Onchan Commissioners. Efforts are now underway to have the building entered into the Protected Building Register.
Any parties who object to the plans or support the proposal for registration are asked to make their feelings known by writing to:
Planning and Building Control Division
Isle of Man IM1 2SF
