Proposed storm water attenuation tank and associated mains – land at Nobles Hospital car-park, Ballakermeen Road, Douglas

Manx Utilities will soon be constructing an underground 450m3 capacity surface water attenuation tank on land located at the south end of the Department of Health and Social Care Nobles Hospital staff car-park, Ballakermeen Road, Douglas.

In addition there is a requirement to lay approximately 130m length of new 450mm diameter drainage pipework from the north entrance of the car-park connecting into the south end tank. These works are class 4 permitted development and therefore no planning application is required.

Background and need

The work will carried out by Island Drainage and Groundwork Limited and is required to remedy a collapsed culvert underneath the car park which caused the ground to sink with large areas of the tarmac breaking up. In 2013 the affected area of the site was fenced off for public safety and since then instances of combined sewer flooding have been recorded along with severe floods on Peel Road. 

Works will begin 18th June 2018 until approximately 15th March 2019.
