Braddan Commissioners’ AGM – 2 May 2019

Braddan Commissioners held their Annual General Meeting on Thursday 2 May and are pleased to announce that Mr Andrew Jessopp was re elected as Chairman for the next Municipal year.

Mr Jessopp has served as Chairman to the Commissioners since May 2013.

Miss Christina Corkill was elected as Vice Chairman for the first time, taking over duties from the previous Vice Chairman, Mr Neal Mellon.

Braddan Commissioners announce 2019/2020 Rates

Braddan Commissioners’ Rate set at 201p in the pound

Braddan Commissioners wish to advise that at a meeting held on 24 January 2019, they set their Parish Rate at 201p in the pound, which represents a 0.5% increase on the previous year.

The Commissioners have ambitious plans for the year ahead which they believe they can achieve with the rate income for the coming year and with the aid of some money that has been underspent in the current year.

The Commissioners will announce the details of the schemes as soon as they have been firmed up, but they include schemes for their recreation areas in Clybane, Snugborough and Cronk Grianagh Park and also enhancement of their work of keeping the Parish clean and tidy and promoting more recycling.
