Nunnery sale questions raised in HoK

Mon, 28 Oct 2013

Questions about the sale of the Nunnery will be raised in the House of Keys tomorrow.

Earlier this month it was revealed that the Manx Educational Foundation would be buying the site to turn it into an International Centre for Technology.

The Council of Ministers have given the MEF six months to secure the funds needed to buy the site – an estimated £12 million.

West Douglas MHK Chris Thomas will ask the Economic Development Minister when and by whom it was decided to sell the estate and what criteria was used to make that decision.

And North Douglas MHK John Houghton will ask the Education and Children Minister what public access to the site will be like if the sale goes through – including access to the chapel.
