Motion: Recission of a Preceding Resolution (Standing Order 24)

Council - 2nd February 2021

"That this Council rescinds a decision taken at the Council meeting on 12 January 2021 to oppose a proposal that 'discussions and correspondence with lobbyists and consultants relating to both fracking and mining remain in the public domain, apart from where the legislation states that it has to be confidential and / or exempt'.


It is herein proposed that such a request is re-visited by the Council, mindful of the current public concern in relation to matters being discussed in closed sessions by the Council, supporting the Local Government aims of Openness, Accountability and Transparency".

Proposed by: Councillor McAleer, Seconded by Councillor O'Cofaigh and Supported by Councillors Deehan, Stephen Donnelly, Keenan and Swift
