You won’t even allow us speak on the matter,” Cllr Collins fumed.“It has been moved back to the Metropolitan District with a commitment from the executive to look at all possibilities,” Mayor Sheahan replied.“There are members here from The Gaff in the public gallery who want to know what’s happening,” Cllr Collins concluded.
