Councillor William McCandless has expressed concern at the levels of disparity of the recently published figures of the funding for Invest N.I. Greater Belfast area has received the lion’s share of the funding with figures per capita of Belfast £ 452:59 , Coleraine £ 97:51 , Limavady £ 40:83.
The investment for East Londonderry area does not appear to be getting it’s fair share and Cllr. McCandless has requested the Chief Executive of Causeway Coast & Glens Borough Council to put this item on the agenda for discussion at the Leisure & Development Committee and invite members of Invest NI. to discuss the disbursement of funds and explain their rationale.
Reviewing the figures across the four legacy councils of the new Causeway Coast & Glens Council, all figures per capita are disappointing
