The Commissioners have decided to increase the rate for next year to 117 pence in the pound, that is an increase of 2 pence or 1.74%. The reason for the increase is a general rise of 1% in Manx inflation, the necessity to replace ageing lighting standards on Ballacriy and elsewhere, the increased areas and frequency of grass cutting on public open spaces, an increase in refuse disposal costs at the Incinerator from £79.50 to £82.87 per tonne, and an increase in the costs of the Southern Civic Amenity Site. These increases have been partly offset by rates on the new houses on Cronk Cullyn, but the rates income from the two quarries in the Parish, based on tonnages extracted, has reduced quite significantly this year.
In accordance with the Isle of Man Audit Act 2006 and Section 17 of The Accounts and Audit Regulations 2013 , Arbory Parish Commissioners advise all interested parties that their accounts for 2015/16 have now been received.
The accounts have been posted on this website and can be inspected at the office of Arbory Parish Commissioners by appointment at any reasonable time.
