Our vision is to provide an excellent and accessible housing service to ensure that all members of our community live in accommodation that meets their housing needs.
Port Erin Commissioners own a large number of social housing, which is managed like all local authority housing by using the common criteria set out by the Department of Social Care, supplemented by local policies where required. The age of the stock varies, but it is all maintained to a high standard to remain an economic and affordable home for our tenants. Via the Marashen Crescent Housing Committee, Port Erin residents also have access to three sheltered complexes specifically for older or less able tenants with a total of 144 properties specifically reserved for those who find it difficult to maintain their own home, but still wish to lead an independent life.
Port Erin Commissioners are responsible for the provision, maintenance and management of the General Social Housing within Port Erin. We currently have 190 properties within this portfolio with a mixture of units from one bed up to seven beds.
“Sheltered Housing” is a term used to describe a group of self contained flats and bungalows specifically designed for older people. Normally you will need to be over 60 but, in exceptional circumstances, younger people with a medical need can also be housed in these schemes.
