Onchan drop in session will answer rates questions

Fri, 29 Mar 2019

There’s a drop in session this weekend for people in the east of the Island to discuss the ongoing review of the rates system.

The Cabinet Office launched a consultation on modernising the Island's current rates system last month.

People can comment on it until April 21st.

The rates for all island properties are currently based on a 1969 valuation system, but they could soon be based on aerial photographs and measurements using laser equipment.

Some people want to see standard rate for all island properties or additional discounts for people who live alone.

Rob Callister MHK and Policy and Reform Minister Chris Thomas will be at the Onchan Community Hub tomorrow to answer questions.
