Rural Co-operation Project - Yellow Frames

Minutes:

The Head of Business presented the above report details of which had been previously circulated to Members.  The purpose of the report was to seek Members’ approval to progress a ‘Yellow Frames’ project as part of the Rural Cooperation Scheme under the NI Rural Development Programme 2014-2020.

 

                        Councillor M McHugh expressed support of the above report.  However he suggested that consideration be given towards the inclusion of Clady Bridge as a location to be included in the ‘Yellow Frames’ project trail. 

 

                        Alderman Hussey endorsed the previous speaker’s remarks and queried if there was scope within the project to extend the programme to include other relevant locations throughout the District area.

 

                        The Head of Business advised that DAERA had requested sites in the Council or other public ownership to facilitate progression of the programme.  However as not all the Councils had taken up their full allocation, there may be an opportunity at a later stage to add more locations.
