Notices of Motion

Councillor McCloskey to Move:

 

This Council opposes the release of any and all City Deal funding to Ulster University.

 

Council demands that following Stormont’s loan to UU for expansion in its North Belfast Campus, a similar financial support be made available to any new institutions in Derry.

 

Councillor Gallagher to Move:

 

That this Council posthumously awards the Freedom of Strabane

to NHS nurse Pat McManus.

 

Councillor Ferguson to Move:

 

This Council recognises the need for active and green travel, and that all communities including our rural communities should have opportunities to avail of this.

 

So this Council calls on the Department of Infrastructure, Department of Communities and the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs to work together with Derry City and Strabane District Council to commit to progress the next stage of the Strathfoyle Greenway.

 

Councillor McKinney to Move:

 

This Council writes to the DAERA Minister expressing concerns following the failure of the amendment to the Agricultural Bill 2019/20 on the protection of food standards in line with current EU standards.

 

Our consumers should expect food that is imported to this country to be of the same high standards of animal welfare and environmental protection as expected of food producers in Northern Ireland. Importing food produced to low animal welfare and environmental standards to undercut our local farmers, is unacceptable.

 

Alderman McCready to Move:

 

This Council takes the position to support the Londonderry Port and Harbour’s pursuit of ‘Free Port’ status and communicates this to the Office of the First Minister and Deputy First Minister and Ministers for the Departments of Infrastructure and the Economy.

 

Councillor Reilly to Move:

 

This Council writes to the Minster for Finance urging him to allow Local Authorities to be able to refinance existing loans from the Consolidated Fund on more favourable interest rate terms.

 

Councillor Mellon to Move:

 

That this Council recognises the concern and anxiety that exists among teaching and non-teaching staff as well as parents and young people in relation to the eventual reopening of schools; understands the challenges facing school boards and principals in keeping children and teachers safe while providing High quality education.

 

This Council will write to the Minister for Education and state that we insist that any re-opening of schools should be based on scientific and medical advice consistent with that provided by World Health Organisation and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control. 

 

Council also calls on the Minister of Education to engage and consult extensively with education stakeholders as well as parents and young people in advance of the re-opening of schools and to provide them with clear and early guidance.
