  14. Notice of Motion Proposed by Councillor Fielding and Councillor A Mulholland, Seconded by Councillor McCaw, referred from 27 November 2018 Council Meeting

    ‘This Council carries out an evaluation into the economic contribution of the Portstewart Community Association Red Sails Festival to the local economy’.

  15. Notice of Motion Proposed by Councillor McCandless, seconded by Alderman Hillis referred from 27 November 2018 Council Meeting

    That this Council notes that Northern Ireland has the highest suicide rate in the U.K. and that in the last 10 years (records compiled 2007 to 2016) there have tragically been 191 lives lost and families devastated in our former legacy councils and in our new Borough council.  It is incumbent upon us to remind anyone who may be in distress or despair that support is available 24/7 and to urge anyone who is having suicidal thoughts to immediately contact their G.P. or signpost them to any of our mental health charities.

    We note that funding on mental health services across Northern Ireland remains wholly inadequate and we express our outrage that the ongoing political impasse at Stormont has meant that initiatives like Protect Life 2 - the new strategy and action plan to reduce our suicide rate - has not been published due to the absence of a local Minister.

    In light of this I propose that this Council write to the Secretary of State to emphasise to her that the current situation is unacceptable and to urge her to intervene to secure the immediate publication of the strategy.’
