Alderman Robinson 
1. To ask Council if they would erect picnic benches/tables on the periphery of the new Accessible play park in Limavady. This would allow families and friends to meet and spend time together whilst enjoying the trading concession when it goes live.
2. To ask Council to consider if a site at Roemill Playing fields would be suitable for a dedicated green space (dog park), as per the motion submitted by Alderman Mark Fielding and Alderman Alan Robinson in 2021 and subject to community consultation.

Councillor Wallace
At the Knock Road recycling centre a cardboard baler was installed about a year ago. It is in metal housing beside the skips. Can I ask why this has been installed, I’m sure at great cost and never used? Why no staff have been trained to use it? Is it ever going to be used and when?

A concession trader has a three year license to trade on a Council pitch. They have two years left on the contract and due to health problems would like to pass the last two years on to another vendor. 
Could the officers confirm the procedure for this option
