Overview

 

Port Erin Village Commissioners have made an application to the Department of Infrastructure for an Order under Section 6 of the Local Government Act 1985 seeking to adjust the boundaries between the districts of Rushen and Port Erin so as to move the entire residential estate at Ballakilley into Port Erin. The land sought to be moved is at present part of the parish of Rushen.

As part of the process for considering the application, legislation requires that a public inquiry be held and this took place on Monday 4 March 2019 and was chaired by Mr G. F. Karran MBE, TH.

Why We Are Consulting

In 2004, Tynwald considered a report from the Council of Ministers titled ‘Local Government Boundary Extensions: Guidelines on Procedure’ which stipulates that 'Public Notices shall be placed in the local press inviting submissions from interested members of the public'. 

What Happens Next

Following the public inquiry held on Monday 4 March 2019, a report was compiled by the Chairperson. This report supported the boundary alteration as proposed by the applicant, Port Erin Village Commissioners, and recommended approval of the draft Order submitted to the Inquiry with the exception of the progressive implementation of rates to be applied which the Chairperson has recommended be extended to the maximum period of 10 years rather than the 5 years proposed. This means that residents on the Rushen side of the Ballakilley development will see a smaller and more gradual increase in their rates over a 10 year period, after which, they will then be the same level as those of Port Erin. The increase in rates will start to be applied from April 2020.

The Chairperson’s report and appendices are available to view on this page, along with a copy of the Port Erin (Boundary Extension) Order 2019. The Order is to be considered at the July 2019 sitting of Tynwald.
