Ramsey Commissioners are to have a special board meeting today (Wednesday) with representatives of Heron & Brearley Ltd, so that the brewery can outline its plans for the empty pubs in the town – the Britannia, the Central and the Stanley.

It is understood that the Britannia, which has been empty for a number of years, has recently been sold.

The commissioners have expressed their concern about the vacant properties and the potential for deterioration in condition.

The commissioners discussed the state of the Britannia two years ago. Click here to read that story.
