Belfast City Council has developed a strategy for an area east of the River Lagan described as the East Bank, and they would like to hear your views on the proposals. The aim is to inform planning and investment decisions that will impact the long-term development of this area.
The area comprises 43 acres with a long frontage of 865m along the river. It runs from the SSE Arena car park at its northern end to the Sirocco Works site to the south and is bounded by Short Strand to the east.
The draft strategy contains proposals for how the area might be developed and better connected to the city centre and the communities adjacent to it.
“By 2030, East Bank will be fully woven into the fabric of the city centre. It will be lively, diverse, accessible and well connected to the city core, the River Lagan and surrounding communities; providing places to live, work and socialise.”
Belfast City Councils wants to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to comment on the East Bank Development Strategy so that they can ensure it is fit for purpose and meets the many needs of the city and those who live, work and visit here.
