Notices of Motion

Councillor Logue to Move:

That this Council commends the #FDANODELAY campaign and recognises that people living in hostels and other temporary/emergency accommodation across our society are homeless and deserve to be legally recognised as such by having Full Duty Applicant status awarded.  This Council calls on the NIHE Chief Executive to respond outlining what measures the NIHE will now take to accurately audit the extent of the problem regarding homeless people who are not recognised as such and what steps will be taken to remedy these oversights.

 Molann an Chomhairle seo an feachtas #FDANODELAY agus aithníonn gur daoine gan dídean iad daoine atá ina gcónaí i mbrúnna agus i gcóiríocht shealadach/éigeandála eile sa phobal, agus, gur cheart go n-aithneofaí iad mar sin sa dlí trí stádas mar Iarratasóir Lándualgais a cheadú dóibh. Iarrann an Chomhairle seo ar Phríomhfheidhmeannach Fheidhmeannacht Tithíochta Thuaisceart Éireann freagra a thabhairt ar an cheist seo le hachoimre a thabhairt ar na beartais a chuirfidh siad i bhfeidhm anois chun iniúchadh a dhéanamh ar líon na ndaoine nach bhfuil aitheantas tugtha dóibh mar dhaoine gan dídean agus na beartais a chuirfidh siad i bhfeidhm leis an neamart a rinneadh a réiteach.

Councillors McKinney and Ferguson to Move:

 

That this Council signs up to the British/Irish Sign Language charter and that officers bring a paper to a future meeting of the Governance and Strategic Planning Committee regarding the relaying of Council meetings in British/Irish Sign Language.

 

 

Alderman Devenney to Move:

 

That this Council writes to the BBC to request that they overturn their decision to scrap the free TV licence for up to 3.7million people aged over 75 right across the United Kingdom.

 

Alderman Hussey to Move:

 

Mindful of numerous efforts to resolve the access issue to sports pitches and playing areas associated with the former Herdman’s Mill in Sion Mills, Derry City and Strabane District Council resolves:  For the last time to seek a resolution to enable access and long term use of the sports pitches and playing area associated with the former Herdman’s Mill in Sion Mills whilst also investigating the issues and producing a report to Council in regard to the potential vesting of these same areas.

 

Further:  In the event that the matter cannot be amicably resolved within a three month period from this date, and subject to the above requested report, that Derry City and Strabane District Council will initiate Vesting Procedures on the sporting pitches, playing area and other relevant lands associated with the former  ...  view the full agenda text for item 12.
