The purpose of the event is to inform the local community about the Belfast Streets Ahead Phase 3 project. The overall aim of the Phase 3 project is to design and implement public realm improvements (such as new paving, lighting, landscaping, street furniture and public artwork) that will deliver high quality streetscape and open spaces that will contribute positively to the economic and social vitality of the Belfast City Centre and will complement the Ulster University’s planned development of its new campus at York Street.
