1. In Riverside Park Ballymoney there is no street lighting from the Bravallen Road end to the train station. Could we get a paper back on the possibility of this being done?

2. I am informed that a vendor who has a trading concession at West Strand Car Park Portrush was told via email on 23/08/2022 that his permission to trade was withdrawn for 24 hours on 28/08/2022.  This was the day of the Mini Car event.  As the vendor was not asked to cease trading during the North West 200 week, nor the Raft Race Weekend, nor the Ford event why was he asked to not trade on the Mini Event Day?  I know that the notice seeking extra vendors during events in Portrush does state that there are already two venders one hot Drinks and one Ice Cream already at West Bay Car Park and that they would be permitted to trade at events within that location.  Why did that change for this one event?  The Land and Property Committee was consulted on officers recommendations to allow concession holders to remain on site during the time there was a temporary transfer of land including West Strand Car Park to Coleraine Motor Club at the time of the North West 200. The Land and Property committee recommended that the concession holders remain on site during the event.
Why was there was a change in policy at the Mini Event and why was Land and Property not consulted on the occasion of of the Mini Event?

3. Can I have an update on the vesting of Drumaduff dump and the delay in paying the turf plot owners.
