Notices of Motion

i)             Councillor D Kelly to Move:


That this Council welcomes the initiative of those from the business sector, the community and voluntary sector, farmers and individuals who have come together to form Border Communities Against Brexit to demand that the Irish and British Governments respect the North’s remain vote and recognise that it makes absolutely no sense to have one part of Ireland operating within the EU and another outside, that this council will actively support the campaign by Border Communities Against Brexit for the North’s remain vote to be respected.


Go gcuireann an Chomhairle seo fáilte roimh an tionscnamh atá tapaithe ag an earnáil ghnó, dheonach is phobal, i gcomhar le feirmeoirí agus daoine aonair a tháinig le chéile faoin scátheagrasComhphobail Teorann in Éadan Brexit” chun éiliú ar Rialtas na hÉireann agus ar Rialtas na Breataine go gcloígheann siad le vóta an tuaiscirt chun fanacht agus go n-aitnníonn siad nach bhfuil aon chiall laghad le cuid amháin den tír a bheith ag feidhmniú laistigh den EU ag cuid eile lasmuigh agus go dtabharfadh an Chomhairle seo tacaíocht bheathach do fheachtas ag Comhphobail Teorann in Éadan Brexit chun urraim a thabhairt don vóta i bhfabhar fanacht ó thuaidh.



ii)           Councillor Carlin and Councillor McMahon to Move:


That this Council explores the feasibility of implementing a district wide Community Benefit Scheme for all current and future planning applications for housing developments in our district.


iii)         Councillor Carlin and Councillor McMahon to Move:


That this Council procures and erects festive greeting signage in the Irish language as part of the new Council area’s Christmas lighting display for Christmas 2016 and thereafter.


Go mbeartaíonn an Chomhairle seo ar chomharthaíocht bheannachta Nollag i nGaeilge a sholáthar agus a chur in airde, mar chuid de Scéim Soilse Nollag 2016 an Cheantair Chomhairle nua, agus as seo amach.


iv)          Councillor Boyle to Move:


That this Council fully supports the 37 year struggle for justice for Gerry McGowan, Michael Toner, Gerry Kelly and Stephen Crumish, known as the Derry 4.  All four were wrongly accused of murder, hi-jacking, kneecapping and other offences following interrogation over several days at Strand Road RUC station.  This Council urges PSNI Chief Constable George Hamilton, to act immediately to ensure that any outstanding inquiries by his officers are carried out without delay in order that the Derry 4 can finally receive their Report from the Office of the Police Ombudsman.  The failure by the PSNI to fulfil its statutory duties within and acceptable time period is wholly unacceptable.
