HOUSING

The Commissioners have 151 properties, which range in size from 1 to 4 bedrooms.

Our properties are situated at:-
Snugborough Estate, Union Mills
Jubilee Terrace, Coronation Terrace & Cronk Grianagh at The Strang

The 33 properties at Cronkbourne Village were sold by the Commissioners in March 2019 to Arragon Jaguars Limited.

During the same month, work commenced on building 30 new apartments at the site of Snugborough Farm, adjacent to the Snugborough housing estate in Union Mills.

New units at Snugborough Farm

New units at Snugborough Farm

The £4.5 million scheme for the new housing complex located on the former Snugborough Farm Site commenced in March 2019. Cedar Developments Limited is the contractor and the build is now scheduled to be completed during the first half of 2021.

The new development will be known as “Mullen Doway”, in Manx “Black Ford” or “Black Ford Mill”, a former name of Union Mills to reflect the history of the village.

The Commissioners hope they will fulfil the need for smaller, lower maintenance properties, with modern insulation and energy efficient heating. The Commissioners consciously chose not to use oil or gas for environmental reasons. Charging points for electric vehicles will also be included.

The mix of one and two bed units will allow existing tenants from larger properties to downsize and provide accommodation for some of the former and remaining tenants from Cronkbourne Village.

More information about the properties will be provided at a later date.

Cronk Grianagh

In 2018 the Commissioners took on responsibility for the maintenance of 37 properties owned by the Department of Infrastructure at Cronk Grianagh. As at March 2020, the trial has been running for almost two years and a further 12 month extension has recently been agreed.  If the trial is successful, the Commissioners hope to take over the management of the remaining DOI properties in Braddan.

Eastern Region Housing Waiting List

We are working with the Department of Infrastructure and Garff Commissioners to provide the Eastern Region Housing Waiting List. You can now be considered for properties owned by all three authorities, in other areas, or just Braddan Commissioners.

Full details of the changes are contained within the Eastern Combined Housing Application Form.
