Councillor Holmes
Could the director please update the committee on plans to trial strimming smaller patches of land in towns?

Councillor MA McKillop
Can I get a update on when work will be starting in Cottagewood in Cushendall?
Can we look at all the bins across the Glens and replace the ones that is not fit for purpose?
Have we enough staff to cover all the grass cutting across the Glens area ?

Alderman Boyle
Following a request which arose at the Coleraine Town Team meeting, can we extend Sunday opening hours for shops restricted to opening between 1pm and 6pm in Coleraine to between 12noon and 7pm during July and August?  This is to assist in businesses coming out of the pressures of lockdown and to maximise advantages from increased staycation visitors over the summer.

Councillor Holmes

Members of the public have raised a query with me regarding a large hot food van that has recently started trading near the entrance to the West Strand Car Park Portrush.
Could the Director confirm whether or not this site is a designated trading pitch for hot food and does the vendor currently have a valid trading licence from Council for that site?

If the trading is occurring on private land does the vendor require a street trading licence?

Does the vendor require planning permission to have a hot food van on the site?

Has DFI Roads approved this site as an appropriate site for street trading given that it is at a busy corner (Metropole Corner) and at the entrance to West Strand Car Park?
