Your Onchan

How We Work:

The General Election has been postponed until 22nd April 2021, due to Section 5 of the Health Protection (Coronavirus) Regulations 2020   

There are seven Commissioners who are elected by the voters of Onchan. The purpose of the Commissioners is to set policy and make decisions relevant to Onchan. The staff employed are there to carry out the policy in the day to day running of the authority.

The Board of Commissioners meet fortnightly on a Monday at 7.00 pm. There is a public section to the meeting of the Board which the public can attend, however, their contribution is not permitted unless invited to do so by the Chairman.  

Residents noticing any concerns such as, street lights not working, damaged play equipment, dirty public conveniences, etc should report these matters direct to the Commissioners’ Office Tel: (01624) 624967.  

You may also report your concerns via our report a problem page and an officer of the Authority will contact you. 


Commissioners' Surgery:

Each month the public are given the opportunity to speak face to face with two commissioners.   No appointment is required. 

These “Surgeries” have been in existence for over 30 years and are there for any member of the public who feels they are not getting an appropriate response from the officers or wish to speak about a delicate matter.

The Commissioners' Surgery is held on the first Saturday in each month between 11.00 a.m. and 1.00 p.m. in The Hub, School Road, Onchan.
