Commissioners call DOI highway charter 'pie in the sky'

Mon, 23 Jan 2023

Braddan Parish Commissioners has called the Department of Infrastructure’s highway charter ‘pie in the sky’.
The charter aims to set standards across all local authorities on hedge cutting and gully sweeping, tasks which were previously carried out by the DoI.
These responsibilities were passed on to the Island’s 21 local authorities to carry out in 2014.

The authority also says the expectations set out in the document are ‘aspirational’ and ‘far beyond’ what the DoI were doing previously.
Chair Andrew Jessopp spoke to our Local Democracy Reporter Emma Draper:
