“That this Council notes the devastating impact of the planned closure of the Michelin Plant in Ballymena with the loss of 860 jobs; notes the reasons given for the closure including high energy costs and competition within the global market and further notes the cumulative detrimental economic impact to the surrounding areas and calls on this Council to explore all options within its power to support our local businesses in order to preserve the economic viability of the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough and to protect long term jobs and create new employment in this borough”. 
17. Notice of Motion submitted by Councillor Nicholl
“That this Council agrees to: Review and where appropriate, remedy its provision of defibrillators across its entire public estate to ensure no gaps exist in adequate service provision. This needs to include our leisure facilities, Council offices, Community centres and areas of high public footfall; Undertake a programme of training for staff who have daily contact with the public in the use of Defibrillators and CPR; and The Council Chairperson in her civic role being requested to bring together charities and campaign groups working in this field along with local Chamber of Commerce Reps and other key stakeholders to shape an action plan for adequate provision of PAD’s (Publically Accessed Defibrillators) in town centre locations alongside provision in shopping centres and highly populated areas”.
18. Notice of Motion submitted by Councillor McCandless
Signed by Councillor McCandless, Councillor Callan, Councillor Wilson and Alderman Hillis.
“Proposed Council Motion on continued Paramilitary Activity
That this Council notes the significant unresolved matters highlighted in the recent Assessment of Paramilitary Groups in Northern Ireland.
The continued existence and activities of the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF), Red Hand Commando (RHC), Ulster Defence Association (UDA), Provisional Irish Republican Army (PIRA) and Irish National Liberation Army (INLA) all provide serious concern.
Given that Sinn Fein are a party of government, it is of particular concern that the report states that the IRA Army Council remains intact, and is perceived to oversee Sinn Fein’s political strategy. It is also troubling that the Provisional IRA retain weapons, are involved in criminal activity, and that its members continue to carry out acts of violence, including murders.
This Council further agrees that Sinn Fein must accept the truth, that the IRA still exists, and use all their influence to ensure the Provisional IRA, along with all other paramilitary organisations, leave the stage completely.”
19. Notice of Motion submitted by Councillor McGuigan
Signed by Councillor McGuigan, Councillor Nicholl, Councillor Chivers, Councillor McCaul, Councillor McGlinchey, Councillor C McShane, Councillor Mulholland: 
“That Causeway Coast and Glens Borough council takes steps to remember the centenary of the Easter Rising and associated events in 2016, and assists in the facilitation, co-ordination and support of associated community-led events.  
That Council formulates a working group comprising members, relevant officers, and other associated community interests across the Borough.  The terms of reference of the working group will be to remember, through appropriately dignified and inclusive means, the centenary of the Easter Rising and associated events across the Borough; and that a budget be decided by this Council after the initial investigations and meeting of the working group to discuss possible events and initiatives.  
It is imperative this Council remembers respectfully  this pivotal historical  event and assists other organisations within the Borough to do likewise"
