To ask the Minister of the Environment for an update on his Department's approval of the proposed No Cycling By-Laws for North Down Borough.

Departmental officials have been working with North Down Borough Council (the Council), the Department for Culture, Arts and Leisure (DCAL) and Departmental Solicitor’s Office to ensure that the Council’s proposed bye-laws to regulate cycling and other matters are valid and agreeable to all parties.
The Department received a version of the proposed bye-laws from the Council on 30 July 2013 and officials have advised the Council that, subject to a number of amendments being made, the bye-laws are suitable for confirmation.
The Council has been asked to provide the Department with a revised version of the bye-law before it is confirmed by both the Department and DCAL.
