CAUSEWAY Coast and Glens Borough Council is the only local authority in Northern Ireland that isn't signed up to a province-wide environmental campaign operated by charity, Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful.

Under the banner ‘Live Here Love Here’, clean-ups are organised and local people are encouraged to “adopt a spot” - transforming derelict or neglected sites into natural havens.

A small grant scheme also allocates cash to groups undertaking environmental initiatives. Among those to benefit is Ballysally's Cornfield project.

A request to join in was rejected by Causeway Coast and Glens councillors two years ago on the grounds of cost.
