North Belfast: New Planning Potentials? | Wed 10 Oct, 9am - 2pm

North Belfast: New Planning Potentials is a workshop-led discussion among community and statutory stakeholders regarding how the future of North Belfast can be planned.

Map produced by Forum for Alternative Belfast.

Students of Queen’s University School of Planning, Architecture & Civil Engineering have been conducting extensive spatial analysis of North Belfast as the first part of a 3 year research project, titled Planning for Spatial Reconciliation.

The event will present the students’ outputs in order to provoke a frank and open discussion about how the issues facing North Belfast can be addressed by the new planning processes being introduced in April 2015.

PLACEwinterschool: 12 - 16 March 2012

The Indian Community Centre, Clifton Street, Belfast 

PLACEwinterschool is an intensive week long event facilitated by Forum for Alternative Belfast focusing on the area and on current and proposed urban projects around the 'Cultural Corridor'. The Corridor extends from the Cathedral Quarter at Donegall Street, up Clifton Street and on to the Crumlin Road Courthouse and Jail and the Carnegie Library on the Oldpark Road. 

Nearly £1 billion of public and private investment will be spent in the area in the next ten years. It is vital that this spending delivers the maximum benefit to Belfast, to the local communities and to the re-making of good streets, in what is one of the most fragmented areas of Belfast. 

We are looking for 
  • Key people from the community, business, government departments, non government agencies, cultural organisations, Belfast City Council and other Councils who will join at different times during the week. 
  • Architecture, Planning, Urban Design and Landscape professionals / students to sign up for the week to develop concept ideas through model making and visualisation (registration necessary). 
  • Many events are open to the public and we encourage people to drop in and see what we are doing. Come to the free Corridor events. 
  • Key note addresses open to the public will be given on Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th March at 6pm. 

During the week cultural events will take place in and around landmark buildings along the Corridor.
