The appeals process for residents against the new sewerage charge will be discussed at the Manx Utilities Authority’s board meeting on Friday next week.

MUA chairman Alfred Cannan was responding to a question by Douglas West MHK Chris Thomas who asked what criteria have been used to determine appeals.

Mr Cannan said: ‘As far as the sewerage charge is concerned, the matter of appeals will be considered at the next board meeting on Friday, May 23, and full clarification on this issue will be provided immediately after this meeting.’

Commonly known as the toilet tax, the charge has caused controversy with even Chief Minister Allan Bell describing it as ‘unfair’.

The issue was highlighted by the Manx Independent earlier this month when it was revealed that properties opposite each other at Westlands housing complex had been charged different amounts, the full £50 charge and £1.
