16.    Notice of Motion proposed by Councillor MA McKillop, seconded by Councillor Mulholland
That this Council notes the significant Housing waiting lists affecting Communities across the district; further notes the need to urgently invest in waste water infrastructure to ensure we can continue building new homes to meet the needs of the people we represent; agrees to write to the Finance Minister to urge him to provide additional resource to the Department for Infrastructure and the Department for Communities to deliver a radical programme of housing new builds.
17.    Notice of Motion proposed Councillor McCaw, seconded by Alderman Boyle
Openness and transparency are key values of this Council and therefore we will use video conferencing software to livestream to media and the public all Full Council and Committee meetings, with the exception of “in committee” items and deputations where presenters object. Furthermore, the videos will be recorded and placed on the Council website.
18.    Notice of Motion proposed by Councillor Scott, seconded by Councillor Anderson
Grass Pitch Provision
Following the recent announcement by the NI Executive that competitive sport can take place from 17th July 2020, it is essential that Causeway Coast & Glens Borough Council ensure sufficient grass pitch provision is made available for bookings so that clubs can implement their necessary preseason training programmes and friendly match schedules in order to be prepared for the new competitive seasons resuming early August after a lengthy lockdown, which has also resulted in the loss of essential income to council finances.
It is also proposed that the ‘No training on grass pitches’ rule be relaxed alongside implementation of a 12month rotational maintenance programme. This would replace the current complete closure approach with a common sense approach in order to maximise income from bookings and remove the yearly issue of no pre-season training facilities being available for local clubs, whilst still ensuring the pitches are maintained to a high standard.
