Ramsey Town Commissioners are today launching a
consultation to give members of the public an opportunity to express their
views as to future possible uses of the Courthouse.
At the meeting of Ramsey Town Commissioners held on 23rd November 2016 the
Commission resolved that in the event of the Ramsey Courthouse being disposed
of by Government the Commission would seek to acquire the Courthouse so that it
remained in public ownership.
Ramsey Courthouse was identified, by members of the
public, as the "heart of Ramsey" when a consultation was undertaken at
the start of the Chief Ministers Town and Country Regeneration
Scheme. This resulted in the focus of the regeneration work in
Ramsey being around the Courthouse.
Contributions to the consultation can be submitted
via the following link:
The link can be found on the Ramsey Town Commission
and Facebook (facebook.com/ramseytowncommissioners) pages.
A paper version of the questionnaire can be picked
up from the Library in Ramsey Town Hall.
Written submissions can also be made to Deputy Town
Clerk, Ramsey Town Commissioners, Town Hall, Ramsey, IM8 1RT.
Mr Andrew Cowie J.P., Chairman of Ramsey Town Commissioners,
“The Commissioners are keen to listen to the views
and ideas of our residents and ratepayers to help us formulate plans to help
further improve our town centre and build upon the growth and success we are
benefiting from. The Courthouse building is a key location in the heart of our
town and could help provide valuable facilities for the community for the
future. We want to include input from the town in any proposals we may put
forward and would be grateful for any productive comments and suggestions.”
The consultation will close at 5pm on Wednesday 1st March 2017.
