Alderman Robinson

To ask Council if they can detail the opening and closing times of the public toilets at our beaches, specifically Benone, Castlerock and Portrush and if there are any plans to extend opening times for earlier morning opening and later closing to cater for an increase in beach users during the Summer months.

Councillor Wilson

To ask the director:

At the full council meeting in May, it was proposed and accepted that additional resource be used to tackle litter etc in areas like Portrush and similar. Can the director advise what the options will be for additional resource, what the cost implications will be and what other services will need to be reduced /stood down (if any) to facilitate additional resource/works in abovementioned areas to ensure we remain within the recently set budget ?
