  16. Notice of Motion proposed by Councillor McCaw, seconded by Councillor Baird referred from 22 January 2019 Council meeting (postponed to 28 January 2019)

    ‘That this Council explore methods of carrying out enforcement of restrictions on caravans and overnight camping, where such restrictions are already in place throughout the Borough, and also carries out a review of existing facilities for overnighting in these vehicles, with a view to expanding the number of designated areas available for this purpose’.

  17. Notice of Motion Proposed by Councillor MA McKillop, seconded by Councillor A Mulholland referred from 22 January 2019 Council meeting (postponed to 28 January 2019)

    ‘Council notes the increased number of citizens across Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council with diagnoses of Autism Spectrum Disorders. We want to ensure that those with A.S.D can have full access to services within our Borough. We want the Borough to be a place where those with Autism and their families feel welcome and supported.

    Council agrees to develop and bring forward proposals which would see the Borough become Autism friendly. Council agrees establish a working group in line with standing orders, and tasks that group with the responsibility of developing proposals for consideration.

    Council should engage with support groups, training providers and statutory partners within the sector to help shape proposals for councils consideration. This would include structured Autism Awareness training for our staff in all council facilities as well as reaching out to businesses, sporting and community groups across the borough.

    Consideration should also be given to council leading the way by offering quiet periods and spaces within our leisure centres and community facilities across the borough in the hope the private sector will follow’.
