A special meeting of Causeway Coast and Glens has been requested by Independent Councillors along with the SDLP, Sinn Féin and Alliance party members.
The embattled council is at the epicentre of public opinion following a damning audit on land and asset disposals carried out by the NIAO.
It is understood that sixteen members have lent their names to a request under (3.2) of the councils standing orders. The order now requires the Mayor to call a special meeting within seven days.
Glens Independent Councillor Padraig McShane stated;
"The Mayor has the power to call a special meeting at any time. He declined my invitation to do so. So it’s good that different groups have recognised the anger among the local community and grouped together to call this special meeting.
Council must be seen to take the evidence seriously and not simply pour platitudes on it while taking no action."
A special meeting was originally called for Tuesday 26th July 2022 at 7PM.
