DoI submits plans for new horse tram depot

Fri, 06 Apr 2018

Permission to demolish the Strathallan Horse Tram Depot is being sought by the Department of Infrastructure.

The Department, which owns and runs the Douglas Bay Horse Trams, has submitted a planning permission to get rid of the building, which is in a serious state of disrepair.

The DoI secured planning permission earlier this year to build a temporary facility at the nearby Summerland site while a new long-term stable facility is designed and built.

The new depot would include offices, public washrooms, accommodation for 13 horse tramcars and sheds.
