End Council disparity and inequality of street cleansing service – McLaughlin

1 Mins read

Sinn Féin Councillor Cathal McLaughlin has called on Council to urgently address the disparity of street cleaning service the Council provides to different towns and villages based on geography.

Speaking after raising the issue at a meeting of Council Cllr. McLaughlin said:

“At the minute different towns and villages are getting a much different street cleaning service from the Causeway Coast and Glens Council based on which of the 4 previous Councils they were in.

“Villages in the old Ballymoney Council area such as Cloughmills, Dunloy, Rasharkin , Loughgiel, etc have their Housing developments swept and cleaned only once every 8 weeks, whereas in Villages the same size in the old Moyle Council this service is carried out on a fortnightly basis. In the Coleraine and Limavady areas it is actually done weekly. I think this disparity of service provision is unacceptable.

“A number of years after the amalgamation of the Councils people should be getting equality of service. Ratepayers have a right to be treated equally no matter what part of the Council area they live in. I have asked officers to address this situation and they have agreed to review the process and come back to Council quickly with a solution.”
