BALLYMONEY Borough Council has agreed that no meetings of standing committee be held during July and August.

During a recent Corporate Services meeting, members backed new that only meeting will be held in August where the Officer, in consultation with the Chair, agree that there is essential business.

The report explained: ‘As has been the custom in recent years it is recommended that no meetings of standing committees be held during July and only in August where the Officer, in consultation with the Chair, agree that there is essential business.

‘While the consultation committee will not meet in July planning schedule will be circulated to members and treated in the same way as streamlined applications, ie, members who want any application removed should notify the Office of the Chief Executive and it will be deferred; the committee will meet in August in order to ensure that deferred applications are not unduly delayed.’

It was proposed by Cllr John Finlay, seconded by Cllr Jason Atkinson that no meetings of standing committees be held during July and only in August where the Officer, in consultation with the Chair, agree that there is essential business.
