Speaking ahead of the meeting, SDLP Colr. Gerry Mullan said: “I am delighted that the Causeway, Coast & Glens Council have managed to keep the rate at a level that will not have a negative impact on ratepayers of the Limavady Borough.

“In the challenging times we face every penny counts, so it’s welcome news that rate bills for people in the Roe Valley will not see any increase.”

Sinn Fein Colr. Sean McGlinchey said: “I welcome the rate that is likely to struck, but there is still a lot of issues to be sorted like the Dungiven sports project which has to be included in the four years.”
