Mayor Visits LARG

LARG with MayorThe Mayor of Dungannon and South Tyrone Borough Council, Sean McGuigan along with Claire Linney delivered a presentation to the LARG group on Tuesday 25th March 2014.

The presentation covered the detail of the Public Realm Scheme and the access improvements which will be in place when the work is completed.  The session proved useful in addressing some of the practical issues around dropped kerbs, parking and highlighting access for people with visual impairments.

The Mayor updated LARG on the upcoming changes in Local Government as a result of the new Mid Ulster super council.  The group discussed everything from the location of the new council, council boundaries, planning and pay rises for councillors.

LARG would like to extend a huge thank you to Mayor McGuigan and Claire Linney for taking the time to consult with and update us on these changes and assist us to understand the role we can continue to play in working with and influencing Local Government.
