Equality

Section 75 Statutory Duties

Section 75 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998 requires Newry, Mourne and Down District Council to have due regard to the need to promote equality of opportunity:

  • Between persons of different religious belief, political opinion, racial group, age, marital status or sexual orientation;

  • Between men and women generally;

  • Between persons with a disability and persons without; and

  • Between persons with dependents and persons without.

We are also required to take account of the desirability of promoting good relations between people of different religious beliefs, political opinions or race.

Our Equality Scheme is in place to integrate equality and diversity into all areas of Council service delivery, decision-making and policy development.

Disability Duties

Section 49A of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (as amended by the Disability Discrimination (NI) Order 2006) requires the Council, in carrying out its functions, to have due regard to the need to:

  • Promote positive attitudes towards disabled people; and

  • Encourage participation by disabled people in public life.

We are committed to the fulfillment of our disability duties in all parts of our organization and our Disability Action Plan sets out how we intend to do this.
