The Isle of Man's Tynwald Parliament has approved a Harbours Strategy which would include building an £80m refurbishment of Douglas Harbour.

It would cover the island’s five key ports – Douglas, Ramsey, Peel, Port St Mary and Port Erin – and includes support for the £11 million development of deep water berthing facilities to allow cruise ships to dock at Victoria Pier, Douglas.

The proposals set out following the review identify a three-year order of works covering seven different areas, with an estimated total cost of £80.37m.

WATCH: Millions owed to councils by property developers

Millions of pounds is owed to our cash -strapped councils.

It's owed by the property developers who keep on building, despite not finishing projects across the region.

A Granada Reports investigation's already uncovered a series of stalled developments and millions in missing money.

Now there are calls from those living in the shadows of those unfinished high-rises to find a resolution - and for those companies to pay their bills.
