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.
