Douglas Promenade Support Schemes

The Department for Enterprise is committed to supporting businesses on the promenade and its adjoining streets whilst the Douglas Promenade Refurbishment Scheme is ongoing.

The Refurbishment Scheme is a multi-million pound project to reconstruct the highway infrastructure along Douglas Promenade. The work will encompass the aspirations and needs of all the promenade users and stakeholders and once complete, will improve traffic flow, footpaths, and cultural areas.

Although the Department of Infrastructure is leading on the Refurbishment Scheme, the Department for Enterprise has created three business support schemes to support local businesses affected by the works:

It is important to note that the schemes are NOT mutually exclusive for eligible businesses, meaning some businesses may be able to receive support under one or more schemes.

Applicants are encouraged to complete the enquiry form and discuss the requirements with the Department before applying.


Please visit the MyProm website for more information regarding the Douglas Promenade Refurbishment Scheme.
