Section 75 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998 (the Act) requires public authorities, in carrying out their functions relating to Northern Ireland, to have due regard to the need to promote equality of opportunity and regard to the desirability of promoting good relations across a range of categories.
Public authorities are also required to produce an Equality Scheme which explains how they intend to fulfil these duties. The Equality Scheme Action Plan is the output document of the equality commitments we have made.
The Equality Scheme and action plan for Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council was approved by the Equality Commission on 25 March 2015.
It can be accessed below and paper copies and accessible formats are available on request. Information will also be provided in copies and in minority languages to meet the needs of those who are not fluent in English.
