Middle (2011)

House of Keys general election on September 29, 2011.


About Middle (2011) 
The single seat constituency of Middle was formed in 1986, at the same time as Onchan, and Malew & Santon. It consists of the parishes of Braddan and Marown, the latter having previously been part of Glenfaba. As the name suggests, the constituency is very much in the 'middle' of the Isle of Man, although it does have a coastline to the southwest, between South Douglas to the north, and Malew & Santon, to the south. Middle includes the Spring Valley industrial estate and the Ballacottier business park, but the main industry in agriculture. The constituency has been represented by three different MHKs since 1986, namely Brian Barton until his elevation to the Legislative Council in 1988, David North from the 1988 by-election until his retirement from politics in 2001, and Martyn Quayle since 2001.
