Plans aimed at boosting business in the capital of the Isle of Man are set to be unveiled on Wednesday.

Douglas Corporation said the public exhibition at the Strand Shopping Centre would reveal an "exciting and dynamic" future for the town.

The display will outline development opportunities being offered to the island's business community.

Council leader David Christian said: "We want Douglas to be an exciting and dynamic place to visit."

He added: "The council has been working with government- we want to see our Douglas economy grow and in order to do that we need to look to the future."

The government said the draft master plan for central Douglas was intended to be a talking point and feedback was welcomed.

It will be on display Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday.
