‘Rates strike of this magnitude is deeply regrettable’ – McShane

Following a 7.65% increase in the domestic district rate factor set by Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council for the year Causeway Coast & Glens Independent Councillor Padraig McShane stated;

“A rates strike of this magnitude is deeply regrettable plus it’s wholly irresponsible. It has attached incredibly high risk when factored alongside our prudential indicators.

The Council’s overall debt is now beyond £80m – a rise of £11m this year. To service that dept it now costs annually, £10,300,000 or the price of a medium-sized leisure Centre.”
