Causeway Coast and Glens Council shows support for infrastructure investment

1 Mins read

Causeway Coast and Glens Council tonight passed a motion, brought forward by the SDLP, recognising the importance of issues including street lights and road maintenance on daily lives and called for the Department of Infrastructure to be properly resourced.

Welcoming the vote, SDLP Group Leader, Councillor Margaret Anne McKillop commented:

“I welcome the support from colleagues from all parties tonight when our motion was passed at Committee. We wanted to recognise the impact that issues such as pot holes and street lights have to our constituents and how positive it is for ratepayers when these issues are solved.”

“We also noted that the Department of Infrastructure has been chronically underfunded over the last number of years and unless it received a financial uplift, it would become increasingly difficult for these day to day issues to be resolved. We recognised this would ultimately lead to disappointment and distress for ratepayers.”

“We agreed tonight to write to the Minister for Finance, Conor Murphy, outlining our belief that the Department of Infrastructure requires additional resource to tackle pressures, that are vital for improving lives for our constituents. I welcome the support of colleagues for this motion tonight.”
