Council votes to uphold controversial decision over Dungiven Sports Complex

1 Mins read

Councillors were called tonight to attend a special meeting  after a motion was submitted to overturn the controversial decision taken in December to not supply funding for a sports complex in Dungiven.

After the motion was read out, Mayor Michelle Knight-McQuillan proposed that council go into committee after the vote was taken, however Sinn Fein Councillors Philip McGuigan and Sean McGlinchey spoke against this as the matter had already been widely covered by the media.

After questions from Councillor George Duddy, the Chief Executive said that the vote could be taken in public, but any discussions on the actual contract should be taken in committee.

Councillor David Harding pointed out that if the motion fell, then there could be no discussion as the decision taken in December would still stand.

The proposal was then put to a vote and was subsequently defeated by 17 votes for and 20 against.
