Councillors this week will hear how officers have identified possible locations for further ‘dog runs’ within the Borough.
Currently, Council has two dog runs in Riverside Park, Ballymoney. 'Dog runs' are fenced areas where dog owners can let their dogs roam off their leads.
In recent months Councillors have asked if similar runs could be established elsewhere in the Borough. Based on criteria, officers have identified the following locations:
a) Christie Park, Coleraine
b) Roe Mill Recreation Grounds, Limavady
c) St John’s, Portstewart
d) Quay Road Playing Felds, Ballycastle
e) Westbay, Portrush
Tomorrow, the Environmental Committee will be asked to assess the selection criteria used and the proposed sites. They may wish to advise officers on the appropriateness of the criteria and sites.
Councillors will be asked to advise officers on their preferred option with officers then to bring back costed proposals to the committee.
