SDLP Causeway team seek action on firework displays

1 Mins read

SDLP Portstewart Councillor, Angela Mulholland proposed a motion that passed at Causeway Coast and Glens Council this week, seeking to act and raise awareness about the impact of fireworks on elderly and vulnerable people, and animals.
Councillor Mulholland commented:

“Fireworks are used by people throughout the year to mark different events. While they can bring much enjoyment, they can cause significant problems and fear for other people and animals. I have been contacted by many constituents who have raised this as a problem.”

“Our motion proposed that we work towards actively promoting a public awareness campaign about the impact of fireworks on animal welfare and vulnerable people – including the precautions that can be taken to mitigate risks, that we write to the British Government urging them to introduce legislation to limit the maximum noise level of fireworks to 90dB for those sold to the public for private displays and to encourage local suppliers of fireworks to stock ‘quieter’ fireworks for public display.”

“I am delighted that colleagues across the council chamber supported our motion this week, seconded by Councillor Margaret Anne McKillop. I hope the success of this motion will give comfort to those people have been made feel anxiety by fireworks.”
