Local Ulster Unionist Councillors believe that the title of Causeway Coast and Glens is the most appropriate choice for the Council at this time.
This is the title under which the shadow Council has been operating and therefore it is familiar to all the people of the new Council area.
Now that the Council has formally taken over and the old Councils have passed into history it does not make sense to undergo yet another name change which would cause additional cost to the ratepayer and mean three different titles in just over a year.
This is not the time to debate name changes, this is a time for focusing on the job of making our area successful.
Causeway Coast and Glens is a name which offers opportunities for Council and businesses to promote tourism and trade in the area and for all of us to benefit from the economic activity that comes from being associated with world famous tourist attractions.
Every town and village in the Council area can use the name to promote their rich culture and history and encourage tourism and investment.
Your UUP team will work tirelessly to develop every opportunity for growth in every area within Causeway Coast and Glens Council.
