A ‘Bolder Vision’ for Belfast

Belfast City Council and Executive Ministers have given their backing to an ambitious blueprint to explore a shared approach to creating a more attractive, accessible, safe and vibrant city centre.

The ‘Bolder Vision’ document - which follows a joint study by Belfast City Council, Department for Infrastructure and Department for Communities – outlines a progressive and wide-reaching vision to significantly reimagine Belfast city centre with the focus moving to a greener, walkable and connected core that is more people and family-focussed.

The vision sets out four key goals - by 2035 Belfast will be:

  • - a healthy, shared, vibrant and sustainable environment, where people of all ages will choose to live, work and visit;
  • - a city that prioritises walking, cycling and public transport;
  • - lively and safe with green streets that celebrate our built heritage with new leisure spaces and a variety of cultural activities;
  • - a city with barriers to movement removed, ensuring that communities across the city are well connected to the city core with the River Lagan a key focus with multiple crossing points and activities along its banks.
