“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. “

That Council consults with local stakeholders including the community association in reference to the potential location of a MUGA.

That Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council explores internal and external avenues to deliver the above.”
