Councillors preserve funding for Garvagh Development Trust

1 Mins read

Ulster Unionist and DUP councillors have joined forces to preserve the funding for the Garvagh Development Trust for a further year.

Both the Mayor, Cllr Michelle Knight-McQuillan, and Cllr Richard Holmes proposed that funding be held at £9,000 to support the good work of GDT.

Cllr Richard Holmes said: “Garvagh Development Trust provides a great facility in the heart of Garvagh which everyone can use.

“I have already raised concerns in council at the £750,000 being spent on town halls and community centres across the whole council area but to single out Garvagh at this stage for cuts without a full scale review is unfair.

“The £9,000 provided to Garvagh can be compared favourably with community centres throughout the old Coleraine council area which typically cost £20,000 per year. Other areas can vary from £2,000 to £40,000 per year which only serves to reinforce the need for review.

“In the absence of a full scale review around provision and funding of all the facilities throughout Causeway Coast & Glens Council it is only fair to retain the as is position for The Garvagh Development Trust.”
