Posted on 26/01/2018 by Cllr Martin Kearney
Leader of the SDLP Mid-Ulster Council Group Martin Kearney expressed his delight that the motion calling on the Department of Communities to maintain the Rates Support Grant at its current level received the unanimous support of all Councillors at their monthly Meeting.
SDLP Belfast Councillor Brian Heading has said that the number of defects in roads in the city is a scandal and that compensation claims are burning a hole in the public purse. Cllr Heading said that money should be diverted to maintenance budgets to prevent accidents.
