Motion (1) from the floor:

It was proposed by Councillor M. Halpin and seconded by Councillor O. Smyth and Councillor H. Lewis:

 

“That this Committee acknowledges

1.    The executive’s assertion with regards to Library Road Playground that “the Council does not and will not” supervise the playground,

2.    And that the motions on this issue passed in October and November were that the Council would find an alternative to Crosscare supervising the playground and never requested that the Council would, itself, supervise the playground.

Therefore, considering the urgency of the issue, we now call on the executive to continue its efforts to ensure that the current supervised arrangement continues and to bring a report to the December Council Meeting on all these efforts, which should include, but not be limited to, discussions with Mounttown Community Facility and reengaging with Crosscare and Barnardos”.

 

A further discussion took place during which Ms. D. Lawson, Director of Services, and Ms. M. Ruane, Senior Executive Officer, responded to Members queries.

 

An electronic vote on the Motion (1) from the Floor was requested, the result of which was as follows:
