Property Renovation Penalty

A fine for any party refurbishing a property and leaving it in an incomplete state for years on end, ie 10 years plus, with the whole area resembling a building site.  Many individuals start property developments and choose to leave them unattended for years on end.  Clean up the Island and enforce/enhance property planning and development rules.


Why the contribution is important

Additional revenue for the Treasury and maintain standards of Island properties.

    There are some terrible examples of buildings left abandoned - attracting rubbish and vandalism.
    The "Bayqueen Hotel" on the Promenade in Port St Mary has been empty for a great many years.
    The area around the building is a mess.
    Many visitors to the island who see the "Bayqueen" comment on the very sad and poor state of it.
    The site appears to be used as a dumping place and storage area for all kinds of materials and building equipment.
    It would be interesting to know - does the owner pays rates on the property ?
