Belfast City Centre Management delivers demand-led services and projects into Belfast city centre, on behalf of its funders, which contribute in a measurable way to a cleaner, safer and economically vibrant city; providing a vehicle for the public and private sectors to determine and deliver an agreed city centre agenda on strategic issues by adding value to the work of the major public sector service agencies.
Belfast City Centre Management Company does not in any way duplicate the activity of others but rather provides:
1. Essential additional City Centre Services.
2. A co-ordination mechanism to maximise private sector engagement and joined-up working in Belfast City Centre.
BCCM is a public private partnership company funded by the Department for Communities. We are legally constituted as a Company Limited by Guarantee with a representative Board of Directors.
The projects which we deliver are organised under three themes:
- Public Space Management;
- Safer City;
- Economic Performance.
Each of our projects are detailed within our Business Plan. BCCM also works closely with our partners by developing its policies and communication to act as an enabler for the city centre.
BCCM operates within Belfast’s core city centre. The area is bounded in the north at the junction of Royal Avenue and Donegall Street, in the East by the river Lagan, in the South at the junction of Shaftesbury Square and the Lisburn Road, and in the west by Great Victoria Street and Millfield.

Belfast City Centre Management Board
BCCM is the organisation behind improving business life, public spaces and the safety of Belfast city centre. Established in 2000 as a partnership between the public and private sectors, it has historically been funded by Belfast City Council, the Department for Communities and the private sector.
The organisation has since changed and has recently undergone a strategic review of its operations resulting in a move towards a more commercial model and new governance structure.
This structural change will see BCCM change its Board structure from a representative Board to a refreshed Board structure to reflect a more commercial approach to its delivery. The new commercially focused Board will comprise of a group of independent strategic experts committed to taking the organisation forward by identifying new opportunities and projects.
In 2018 Andrew Webb, chief economist at Grant Thornton, was appointed as Chairman of BCCM.
Members of BCCM's board include;
- Mark O'Donnell, Department for Communities
- Carol Ramsey, Retired Northern Ireland Civil Service
- James Clarke, James Clarke Property and Consulting Services
- Justin Cartwright, Policy & Public affairs Manager at Chartered Institute of Housing, Belfast
- Mark McKelvey, Ulster Bank Limited
