The Isle of Man planning system seeks to manage development and balance sometimes competing interests. In recent months issues have been highlighted in a review carried out by officers for the Council of Ministers and in light of this some changes are clearly necessary.
This is your opportunity to help Government make the right decisions for the planning system and prepare properly to bring these changes into operation. Your views will be helpful whatever your experiences of the planning system – for example making or commenting on planning applications, participating in the preparation of planning policy, or the environmental and heritage aspects of our Island.
To find out more and to make comments please visit: Improve the Planning System
The deadline for comments has been extended up to the 8th January 2018

The money was raised from racing fans during this year’s TT and Isle of Man Festival of Motorcycling at the Commissioners’ Memorial Hall in Union Mills. The garden is always popular with spectators and the Commissioners open the hall for the use of Marshalls and fans free of charge.
Andrew Jessopp said “Braddan Commissioners have organised charity collections at the Memorial Hall for several years and we’re grateful to the fans who donated so generously to these worthwhile causes”.
Braddan Commissioners’ Chairman, Andrew Jessopp presented representatives from the Friends of the Hyperbaric Chamber, Rebecca House and the Injured Riders Association with cheques for £473.95.
The money was raised during Braddan Parish Day which was held earlier this year on 23 July at Strang Corner Field. The event was organised by the Commissioners as a family fun day with free children’s entertainment, charity and food stalls.
Andrew Jessopp said “This was the fourth Parish Day we’ve organised and it was a very successful event, the monies were raised from stall fees, a raffle and donation boxes around the field. We’re very grateful to all the businesses that provided sponsorship for the children’s entertainment, the stall holders and everyone who helped make the day such a success”.
