A proposal brought forward by Councillor Sean Bateson to re-open amenity sites in Kilrea & Garvagh on a six-day week basis was rejected at the full council meeting this evening.

Commenting shortly after the vote Councillor Bateson said “I re-iterated that this was a reduction in service for ratepayers within my DEA and that this service should be the same here as it is across the council area.

Seriously disappointed but not surprising this was rejected again, even by some local representatives for this area. This was a recorded vote and I will post the details of it asap. There has been no rural or equality impact assessment on the closure of these sites on a limited basis for Kilrea & Garvagh which I emphasised. In the absence of such a report I will be calling this decision in and seeking another vote in due course.

I hope common sense and good representation can prevail but it seems to be lacking in some quarters within our council.”
