Coastal Erosion Motion

That this council recognizes the present and future dangers that coastal erosion will bring to our coast line. That this council also recognizes the impact that coastal erosion will have on our economy and the quality of life for our residents, and further recognizes the ongoing loss of land to the agricultural community due to coastal erosion. That this council now calls on the Department of Infrastructure and DAERA to look at setting up a Coastal Observatory in line with and under the same conditions as other jurisdictions.

15.    Notice of Motion proposed by Councillor McCaw, seconded by Councillor Mulholland, referred from Council Meeting held 4 August 2020

‘Council notes with concern the rise in the amount of litter in the Borough over the previous months, in particular the effect this has on the natural environment and on our reputation as a tourism destination. Therefore, Council tasks officers to develop a comprehensive Litter Strategy for the Borough, to incorporate a review of the litter infrastructure, lifting and disposal of waste, education and engagement with the community and local stakeholders. Council officers should use best practice from other Council areas across the UK and Ireland as a blueprint for this.’
