Dog Control (HC13/21) - Walkway Lighting


 Councillor Logue advised that she wished to raise an issue regarding walkways.  She referred to the lack of lighting along Foyle Embankment from Craigavon Bridge to beyond Coshowen on the Foyle Road.  She stated that she had been contacted by a large number of people regarding no lighting in that area.  She felt that it was a health and safety issue, therefore it was important that adequate lighting was available in that area to make it safe for people to use and would be grateful if Officers could take this forward. She stated that a lot more people were out walking due to the pandemic restrictions and highlighted a recent appeal by the Mayor for people to avoid the city centre quayside walkway due to concerns around congestion.  


                        In response, the Director of Health and Community stated the comments were noted and she would forward the request to colleagues in the Environment and Regeneration Directorate.
