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.
