    “Fully Duty Applicant status for Homelessness

That this Council commends the #FDANODELAY campaign and recognises that people living in hostels and other temporary/emergency accommodation across our society are homeless and deserve to be legally recognised as such by having Full Duty Applicant status awarded.This Council calls on the NIHE Chief Executive to respond outlining what measures the NIHE will now take to accurately audit the extent of the problem regarding homeless people who are not recognised as such and what steps will be taken to remedy these oversights.”

  1. Notice of Motion proposed by Councillor McLean, seconded by Councillor McAuley (referred from Council Meeting 27 August 2019)

With the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War approaching, Council wishes to recognise the contribution of those who fought in that War from Northern Ireland.  It notes that every year the number of our surviving veterans is reducing and the time to provide public and appropriate recognition is running out.  This Council will therefore provide all surviving veterans of WW2 (including those in the Merchant Navy) who reside in our Borough with a Silver Poppy of Remembrance to mark their service in the fight against Fascism and Nazism.  These Poppies will be presented to all surviving Veterans at a special Service of Remembrance the week commencing the 4th November 2019.  It further encourages other Councils throughout Northern Ireland to mark our surviving Second World War veterans service in a similar way.
