Bay Road Park Emergency Removal of Trees (Ref ER43/19)

on the above, the Head of Environment advised that both processes were

ongoing in terms of identifying the land owner and the Tree Surgeon would

be examining the trees to determine if they were unsafe. A report thereon

would be presented to the next Meeting of the Committee.

 

In response to a query from Councillor Tierney regarding the laneway at the

rear of Mountpleasant, the Head of Environment assured that, as had been

previously discussed, there were a number of issues which had delayed the

process.  He said it had been established that a bat survey was required which

would be carried out by the Bio Diversity Officer.  The Tree Surgeon would

also carry out an examination to determine whether or not the trees

presented a danger to public safety.  He undertook to advise the Member of

the outcome the following week.

 

ER70/19

Update on the Implementation of the Circular Economy and Zero Waste Strategy (Ref ER44/19)

Minutes:

In response to a query from Alderman Hussey, the Director of Environment

and Regeneration advised that the Workshop on Circular Economy for Cities

held in the Leuven Institute for Ireland in Europe, Leuven, Belgium which she

had attended the previous week with the Head of Environment had proved

most beneficial.  She stated that the Workshop was attended by

representatives from eight cities and regions across the island of Ireland and

by a number of other cities from Belgium and the Netherlands.  She pointed

out that presentations had been given by each of the participating cities on

the transition and progress to date in developing their circular economy cities. 

She referred to a number of issues which were discussed ranging from

investment, procurement and operation of service and engagement with the

universities and business communities.  She stated that representatives from

both Derry Donegal had met with officials from DG Environment and DG

Regional to consider how Council’s partnership with Donegal (NWRDG) could

avail of support on the circular economy.

 

The Director of Environment and Regeneration advised that Officers were in

the process of preparing a feedback report to the EU Commission which

would be presented to Members for information.  She continued that from the

Officers’ perspective it was a very beneficial experience for Council in its

endeavours to become a circular economy region.  This would involve a

considerable amount of work and the Workshop had provided Officers with

the benefit of the other cities’ experiences and an extensive insight into what

the process involved.

 

Alderman Hussey thanked the Director of Environment and Regeneration for

her extensive update.

 

Councillor D Kelly welcomed the Director of Environment’s comments in terms

of vision and aspirations.  In regards to the report currently being prepared by

Officers, he queried if it would be appropriate to consider the legislative

framework which existed in the North of Ireland compared to other

participating cities and regions to determine if it was achieving Council’s goals

in terms of a zero waste economy.

 

The Director of Environment and Regeneration explained that discussion had

taken place with the DG Environment Officials regarding this issue.  She

pointed out that some regions were spending considerably more in this

regard and when questioned about how they demonstrated or justified value

for money to elected representatives they were unable to do so.  She stated

that Officers would prepare a report together with a strategy for submission

to a future Meeting of Committee.  She referred to discussion which had also

taken place on the possibility of further engagement and potentially having

one or two of the participating regions to present to a wider forum locally and

regionally which would be further considered together with all possible

options.  She concluded that the Workshop had proved a most beneficial

experience mainly because of the opportunity to engage with  participating

regions and share their experiences particularly in regards to good practice

and engagement with the business community,

Derg Riverside Walk pdf icon PDF 46 KB

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Head of Environment presented the above report, a copy of which had previously been circulated.  He pointed out that the purpose of the report was to advise Members on details with regard to the riverside walk between Castlederg and Spamount and seek direction on the way forward.

 

Councillor R McHugh pointed out that this project had been the aspiration of the former Strabane District Council.  He referred to the original feasibility study which had been carried out which referred to the area from Ardstraw to Lough Derg.

 

Councillor R McHugh said that whilst he would have reservations regarding the delivery of the entire route, he felt this specific area was most practicable and would be in compliance with the Local Community Plan and Shared Spaces Project under Peace IV.  He referred to the possibility of an increase in associated costs if problems were scoped out. 

 

Alderman Hussey pointed out that the proposed development of a walkway from Ardstraw to Lough Derg had been adopted by the former Strabane District Council and the feasibility study carried out in respect thereof was also the responsibility of the Legacy Council.  This was now being progressed by the new Derry City and Strabane District Council.  He stated that the Strabane Legacy Council area was most deserving of this project as were other areas where riverside walks were being developed within the former Derry City Council area and could be developed in conjunction with the Shared Space project.  He stated that the issue of developing the entire walkway was a long-term aspiration and would be carried out on a piecemeal basis.  However, the Ardstraw to Loughderg section could be developed at this stage.    He stated that the proposed development would provide a welcome addition to leisure and outdoor facilities in the Castlederg and Derg areas.

 

Councillor Tierney welcomed the report.  In regards to the recommendation contained therein regarding further scoping costs, he enquired if this would include line arrangements and queried if, and when, these proposals would be presented to Council’s Capital Working Group for consideration.

 

The Director of Environment and Regeneration confirmed the afore-mentioned query.  She pointed out that Members were being requested to consider the initial costings and review these and consider how Council would negotiate on what arrangements needed to be put in place with the landowners who owned the path in question.  She stated that the Council budget was in respect of Council owned facilities and the aspect in question would require consideration together with any further mechanisms outside the remit of the Capital Working Group.

In response to a query from Councillor Hastings, the Head of Environment explained that were there were established rights of way which were maintained for public use and recorded on a register.  He stated that this was probably a more permissive right of way where it would be necessary to reach agreement with the land owner that they would be willing to grant Council access to their lands and then develop the scale  ...  view the full minutes text for item ER73/19

Redevelopment of Former Landfill Site at Carricklee pdf icon PDF 29 KB

Minutes:

The Head of Environment presented the above report, a copy of which had previously been circulated.  He advised that the purpose of the report was to update and seek Members’ comments with regard to next steps on progressing the development masterplan for Carricklee Landfill site.

 

Councillor M McHugh referred to concerns which he had regarding the development of this site.  He referred to a proposal which he had put forward at a previous Council Meeting that consideration be given to the number of play facilities available for residents of the surrounding area.  He stated that as a result thereof funding had been provided to explore play facilities in the area.  He stated that it was quite obvious that this type of facility would be provided in the near future and the timescale was much greater.  He stated that in highlighting this he had hoped there would be a recommendation that monies be set aside to consider the possibility of play provision and to look at the alternative sites for play provision.

 

Alderman Hussey confirmed that the area in question was within the Derg area.  He stated that it was the area of Carricklee which had been identified in regards to play provision and this had been ongoing for some time.  He referred to the need for the residents’ requirements to be addressed.

 

Councillor Hastings said his Party were in agreement with the recommendations put forward by Officers given the type of waste which had been deposited on the site.  He stated that in relation to this there were two separate issues - the dump and play provision which needed to be addressed. He suggested that NIEA, as the licencing body, should assume some of the responsibility to ensure that the former landfill site was restored in a way which was fit for purpose for the surrounding area.  He expressed his support for the suggestions expressed by the former speaker.

Subsequently, the Committee

 

Recommended       (a) that Officers explore alternative uses for the former landfill site and bring back a report to a further meeting of the Committee; and

 

(b) that Officers look at alternative areas within the wider area with a view to developing play and other facilities as proposed for the former Carricklee Site.

The Director of Environment and Regeneration referred to the SIF projects which had involved both the former Omagh and Fermanagh Councils.  These had previously been led by the former Omagh District Council and then more recently transferred to the newly merged Fermanagh and Omagh District Council.  She stated that a number of issues had arisen in terms of delivery of the projects with the Health and Communities Directorate seeking the support of the Environment and Regeneration Directorate in resolving these and assisting with the project management elements of the works locally.  Both Directorates were working closely with Fermanagh and Omagh District Council to carry out the works onsite and she said she was confident this was progressing and would reach a satisfactory conclusion.

In response to a query from Alderman Hussey, the Director of Environment and Regeneration referred to issues which had arisen in regards to how the project had progressed and Council had subsequently become involved.  She reiterate that it was now hoped that the project would progress and come to fruition.

 

Councillor Tierney, on behalf of his Party, commended Officers from the Environment and Regeneration Directorate on the work they had carried out during the previous twelve months and since the inception of Derry City and Strabane District Council.  He stated that with a staff of 420, a huge budget and an exceptional reputation for delivering, the work being carried out within this Directorate was evident and making an impact throughout the City and district.

 

Councillor Duffy, on behalf of Sinn Fein, also thanked the Director of Environment and Regeneration and her team for their hard work and commended them on their many achievements across a wide spectrum of areas.  She praised Officers from within the Directorate on their approach.  She welcomed the 273 social housing units which had been built together with the 576 private dwellings together with the Ballyarnett Play Park and the Multi-Model Transport Hub.  She wished the Directorate continued success in the future.

 

Councillor D Kelly referred to the considerable monies spent on waste refuse collection and street cleansing and referred to the need to keep reducing waste and encouraged Officers in their endeavours in this regard.  He stated that those sums currently being spent on waste/refuse collection could be much more beneficially invested in other service provision.

 

The Director of Environment and Regeneration thanked Members for their comments and agreed with the need to reduce the current volume of waste/refuse.  She stated that the main proposals in moving forward were to concentrate on achieving a circular economy and good resource management.  She pointed out that approval had been given through the rates estimates process to appoint a Campaigns  ...  view the full minutes text for item ER77/19
