Port St Mary Golf Course Consultation

The Board of Port St Mary Commissioners are consulting with the residents of Port St Mary on the future of the Port St Mary Golf Course.  The current lease for the Golf Course is up for renewal at the end of September 2022. 

A consultation document will be issued to every house in the village over the coming week, the consultation runs for a period of 8 weeks (closing 7th March), when the results will then be collated, reported to the Board and published. 

No decisions on the future of the course have already been taken by the Board and this consultation is designed to identify a range of opinions to assist the Board in the decision making process.  Should the outcome be that there is overwhelming support for the course to remain, the question is being asked as to what extra facilities residents would like to see provided there.  However, should residents wish to see the land used for other recreational activities, they are again being asked to submit ideas for what they would like to see.

The Chair of Port St Mary Commissioners, Bernadette Williams, said “the Board would like to engage with the residents of the village to see where their passions and interests lie and to ensure that we are not just rolling over leases but exploring all options for the benefit and future of the village.  The Board are really excited to see the responses from the consultation, be it that additional and improved facilities are required at the Golf Course, or that the residents would like to see a new direction taken with regards to recreational activities on the land”.

There is no intention to develop or sell the land to be developed for housing. 

Public 1-2-1 drop-in sessions with a PSMC Board member and the Clerk to answer any queries prior to completing the consultation will be held in the East Room (old office) at the Town Hall as follows:

Wednesday 26th January 10-12am

Tuesday 1st February 2-4pm

Yours faithfully

Hayley Fargher

Clerk

    The Golf Course should be kept its one of the very few amenities, possibly some of the waste area on it could be used, for children’s use T build there would ruin P.S.M. we only have one main road in and that’s precarious
