20.    Notice of Motion proposed by Councillor Holmes, seconded by Alderman McCandless   

“Council notes the existing arrangements for Freedom of the Borough.

Council proposes that in future:

A single event is held I the latter part of Year 4 of the Council term.

Up to 4 Freedom of the Borough’s may be bestowed on worthy citizens or organisations.

Recommendations for Freedom of the Borough will go forward to a sub-committee established for the purpose.

The Committee will also establish basic criteria upon which to determine whether a Freedom of the Borough has been met.  The Committee will put forward the 4 names to CPR/Full Council.”

21.   Notice of Motion Proposed by Councillor Hunter, seconded by Councillor Holmes

“Council notes the successful development of the Bushmills Salmon and Whiskey Festival and tasks Officers to develop plans to enhance it as a Food Festival to help promote Taste Causeway and the local Food Industry.

22.   Notice of Motion proposed by Councillor Richard Holmes seconded by Councillor Wilson

“Council notes the rise in tourists coming to the area and the significant spend across the council area.  Council also notes that this is heavily biased towards the coastal areas where most of our attractions are located.  In order to help inland attractions Council task officers to establish tourist trails for holiday makers.  Such routes may include Yellow Frame trail, GoT trail, 1718 Migration trail amongst others.”

23.   Notice of Motion proposed by Councillor Holmes seconded by Alderman McKeown

“Council notes that we currently have four Twinning Committees in operation which run independently of Council but supported by Council.  With the imminent Brexit deadline Council tasks officers to explore opportunities for trade missions with our twinned destinations. Consultees should include (but not exclusively so) the Twinning Committees of the various towns (both partners in the twinning arrangement) and local trade bodies.”

24.   Notice of Motion proposed by Councillor Hunter seconded by Councillor Wilson

“That this Council recognises our up and coming athletes within our Borough, seeing first hand at The 148th Open the fitness required for those taking part at this level.

I propose that within our Borough, that CCGBC puts in place within its owned leisure facilities/fitness suites/athletes track and swimming pools, that we establish a similar Elite Athletes Card Scheme, comparable to those in other Council Areas within Northern Ireland.”

25.   Notice of Motion proposed by Alderman McKeown seconded by Councillor Holmes

“This Council notes recently published research from the charity CARE NI that found 445 attacks have been recorded on places of worship in Northern Ireland in just the last 3 years.  It notes with concern that 12 of these despicable attacks were recorded in the Causeway Coast & Glens policing district; unreservedly condemns all attacks on places of worship, no matter what faith or denomination, and upholds the important human right for individuals to be free to worship and live out their faith in this society. This Council also notes the operation of the Places of Worship Security Scheme in England and Wales and expresses regret that a similar scheme is not available in Northern Ireland. This Council therefore agrees to write to the Department for Communities and the Northern Ireland Office calling for the swift introduction of a similar scheme locally.”
