    Arbory and Rushen Commissioners’ Rate Set for 2021

     The Arbory and Rushen Parish Commissioners have reluctantly agreed to a 6p in the pound rate increase for 2021/22.  (£1.36p)

    The Commissioners are acutely aware that many ratepayers are struggling financially due to the impact Covid restrictions have had on their incomes, however, the above inflation rise has been deemed necessary due to a significant shortfall in the income rebate due to the Commissioners from the Southern Civic Amenity Site (SCAS).

    Savings have been made in the authority’s administration which cover the anticipated loan charges for the major new recreational development at Ballakilley, the significant SCAS shortfall leaves the authority with little alternative but to increase the rate as agreed.
