Alderman Hussey queried the current threshold in regards to the number of household replies received in regards to the decision to erect bilingual signage.
Councillor McHugh disagreed with the former speaker’s comments. He pointed out that all households were contacted and it was a matter for individual residents if they chose to respond. If they did not partake in the consultation process they could not impact the overall decision.
The Director of Environment and Regeneration advised that the policy adhered to in regards to Street Naming and Property Numbering had been formally adopted by Council. She stated that the plebiscite was circulated to all householders and this was in accordance with the policy agreed by Council. She stated that any change in policy was a matter for Members to decide.
Recommended that given the outcome of the four plebiscites, approval be granted to the erection of bi-lingual signage at Ballycolman Estate and Church View, Strabane and Ballymagowan Park, Derry.
