Commissioners welcome sewerage works prosecution

Wed, 29 Mar 2017

Onchan District Commissioners are welcoming a move by the Manx courts to prosecute the owner of Groudle Glen House for not repairing the sewerage works on the site.

The local authority says the owner was contacted more than 18 months ago and notified of the problem, but that work hasn't been carried out.

The Deputy High Bailiff found the owner guilty of failure to comply with a notice issued under the Sewerage Act, and will impose a daily fine until the area is cleaned up and repaired.

The Commissioners insists it was necessary to undertake criminal proceedings because the area posed a serious health and safety risk to the public.
