Boundary Review Committee extends consultation on Onchan constituency

Wednesday, 10 April 2013

The Boundary Review Committee has agreed to extend the consultation period on a potential change to its proposal for the future of the House of Keys constituency in Onchan.

The consultation was due to close today Tuesday April 9, but after discussion with Onchan Commissioners the Committee has agreed to extend the deadline for responses until this Friday April 12. Indeed the Committee would welcome views from residents affected up to and including April 15, after which time it will need to start drafting its final report for Tynwald.

The Committee’s original proposal for Onchan included locating most of Birch Hill in a new East constituency. It is now considering retaining Birch Hill within the Onchan constituency but moving most of Howstrake including Lakeside Gardens into the East constituency.

The Committee wishes to invite those affected by these changes to examine the revised draft maps on the Boundary Review website or at the Commissioners’ offices in Onchan and, if they wish, to respond with their views by email or letter; the contact details are below. Responses should be received by 5pm on Monday April 15 2013.

Responses can be made in writing to:
