18.   Notice of Motion proposed by Councillor McCandless, seconded by Alderman Hillis

The Children’s Funeral fund was launched by the P.M. Theresa May in April 2018 thereby bringing England into line with Wales. The fund has been introduced into Scotland in May 2018.

Basically adopting this fund means that grieving parents will no longer have the financial pressure of meeting the costs of burials or cremations and the fee will be met by Government funding in Wales England and Scotland.

Unfortunately we have no functioning executive in Northern Ireland so realistically we would be unable at present to achieve this aim and there is no indication on the immediate horizon of any return, however we should still forward the sentiment of this NOM to the Dept for Communities to lobby for this cause and be ready to be presented for consideration by incoming Ministers.

To that end I would propose that we in Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council follow the example set in other Councils in Northern Ireland by waiving, at this stage, the associated costs of opening a grave for children under the age of 18 in this Borough in any council controlled cemeteries. This is the least we can do as a gesture to stand alongside the bereaved families at the most painful moment in their lives and demonstrate our support for them in a practical manner.

19.   Notice of Motion proposed by Councillor Stevenson, seconded by Alderman Campbell

That members of this council are fully updated in regards to the details of the process leading up and including the transferring of Edward Street Social Centre to NICVA following the Council meeting of Tuesday 22nd May, 2018, during a call in period. That members are also updated as to the process and rationale for rejecting a call in on the decision not to take on ownership.

20.   Notice of Motion proposed by Councillor Stevenson, seconded by Alderman Campbell

That this council ensure that an Audit of Need and Options Appraisal in relation to Community Facilities is carried out in all towns in the borough with a population of over 5,000. That these audits be carried out over the next four years and that it starts with the largest population in descending order, the first audit to be completed by March 2019
