Councillors elected to the new Antrim and Newtownabbey super council are scheduled to hold their inaugural meeting at Antrim Civic Centre this afternoon.

The 40-member council will operate in ‘shadow’ form over the next 10 months alongside the existing local authorities, until the official merger of Antrim and Newtownabbey councils on April 1, 2015.

Items on the agenda include discussing governance arrangements and a budget for the shadow council, as well as convergence of district rates.
