Councillors this evening agreed to delay a decision on a dog control order from lands between Ballintoy Harbour and Whitepark Bay.
The Environmental Services Committee heard how Council received a request from a landowner requesting Council impose a Dog Control Order on his lands where an asserted Right of Way footpath is located. The path runs from Ballintoy Harbour to Whitepark Bay. The lands are private where livestock are kept however the public use the pathway for recreation and for walking dogs.
The amendment was brought forward by Alderman Yvonne Boyle.
The decision is expected to return to the Environmental Services Committee next month.
