Sinn Féin Councillor Sean McGlinchey has welcomed the passing of a motion in Limavady Council instructing legal counsel to look at the Causeway Coast and Glens Councils’ decision to defer the Dungiven sports project again.
Councillor McGlinchey said: “The sports project in Dungiven had be cleared through Limavady Council before the Reform of public Administration and construction was to begin very shortly.
“However with the advent of the Causeway Coast and Glens super Council coming into being, the decision to proceed was halted pending a review.
“I believe that this was due to the fact that the super council is now Unionist dominated and the decision to halt the project was sectarian.
“I also believe that the new Council has not got the power to change the decision of Limavady Council so I welcome the fact that Limavady Council will now take a legal challenge on the validity of the decision taken by the new super Council.
“I am determined that this first class recreation facility will be delivered for people of Dungiven on time.”
