E44/03     MINUTES

           The minutes of the meeting held on 10th April 2003 were approved and signed.

E45/03     MATTERS ARISING

           E41/03(e) Local Government Act (Northern Ireland) 1972

           It was reported that the Council had received a request for funding from the Sperrin
           Lakeland Trust towards the appointment of a support worker for one year on an
           interim basis, to look at the problem of chronic drink problems which was
           manifesting itself on street drinking and repeat offences. It was noted that the
           Council did not fund salaries.

           A member referred to the Committee meeting in June 2002 when officials from the
           Sperrin Lakeland Trust attended and gave an overview with regard to the Trust’s
           work in the management of people with chronic alcohol related problems in
           Fermanagh and its proposals for the future.

           Concern was expressed that no progress appeared to have been made since that
           meeting and it was recommended that representatives from the Sperrin Lakeland
           Trust be invited to a future meeting to update the Council on their plans.

           RECOMMENDED: That the Sperrin Lakeland Trust be invited to a future meeting
           of the Committee to update the Council on progress.

                                              4



         The Director of Building Control reported that Mr. Daniel Teague had been in
         contact with the office in respect of the erection of building at Glenarn, Lack.

         As to date, no applications had been received in respect of the above developments,
         it was now recommended that legal proceedings, as provided for in Article 21(1) and
         (2) of the Building Regulations (NI) Order 1979, be instituted by the Council.

         RECOMMENDED: Accordingly.

E47/03   BUILDING REGULATIONS

         The Director of Building Control referred to a letter received from the Department of
         Finance and Personnel. This related to a consultation exercise carried out by the
         Department of Finance and Personnel in February 2002 regarding the application of
         radon protection measures to buildings.

         The Department’s letter indicated that the consultation exercise had been
         inconclusive.

         Accordingly, the Department had concluded that it could not appropriately take this
         issue any further forward at this time, and had, therefore, decided to postpone, for the
         present, any further consideration of extending the requirements of Part C of the
         Regulations in relation to radon protective measures. The Department would
         continue to monitor both scientific research in the area of radon protective measures
         and the outcomes of any further surveys of radon which may take place, and would
         return to the subject should such surveys or research indicate that change was
         required.

         The Committee noted the comments of the Department.

E48/03   POSTAL NAMING AND NUMBERING

         (a) Proposed Development at Cavanaleck, Enniskillen

         The Committee considered the naming of the above development and it was reported
         that the developer had suggested “Fairfield Court”.

         Discussion took place and it was

         RECOMMENDED: That this matter be deferred to next month’s meeting.

         (b) Naming of Private Development off Rossorry Church Road, Enniskillen

         The Director of Building Control reported that this development had been named
         “Ceisil Na gCleite Glade” at the April Council meeting. The developer had now
         proposed a dual name for the development.

         RECOMMENDED: That the above development be named “Featherbed Glade”
         and “Ceisil Na gCleite”.
                                             5
