17.  Notice of Motion proposed by Councillor Alan McLean, seconded by Councillor John McAuley     

“Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has many miles of beautiful coastline that has seen an increase in visitors during the last number of years as we promote its tourism opportunities.  Unfortunately, the marine environment suffers from an increasing amount of plastic waste and in shore litter which locals have always been keen to keep under control.  In order to assist local communities in keeping their areas tidy and free from litter, this Council would purchase and install a number of Seabins in order to improve this position and ensure future generations can enjoy this wonderful asset.”

18.   Notice of Motion Proposed by Alderman John Finlay, seconded by Councillor Margaret-Anne McKillop

“That this Council expresses its deep concern at the decision by Westminster to proceed with reform of abortion law against the wishes of the people of Northern Ireland and their elected representatives, and notes the sensitivity and complexity of this issue, and ask that no legislative changes regarding abortion be considered until the NI assembly is restored.”

19.   Notice of Motion proposed by Councillor Richard Holmes seconded by Councillor Sandra Hunter, supported by Alderman Norman Hillis


Council notes that we own significant plots of land and buildings across the Borough which may have development potential. We also note that there has been significant growth in housing stock in recent years but that demand still outstrips supply with waiting lists for housing still an issue. Whilst ensuring we manage our green spaces, we task officers to:

1.     Explore options to develop land/buildings for housing and/or commercial purposes;

2.     Determine whether it is a viable option to enter the renting sector having developed sites and whether this should be done alone or in partnership with housing organisations;

3.     Assess whether a Council Owned Development Company is the best option to deliver the above.”
