In November, we asked for your views on the Belfast Hub proposals and received thousands of responses.
 
Thank you for such a positive and supportive response; we’ve listened carefully to your individual comments and suggestions which have been used to develop and shape the latest Hub proposals.
 
You’re now invited to attend our final exhibition prior to the submission of planning applications. You will be able to review all the proposed design changes that have been made in response to the feedback we previously received.

The last consultation identified a series of recurrent key themes, such as: access for people with impaired mobility; cycling infrastructure provision; contemporary versus traditional design; traffic congestion and parking provision in the vicinity; noise & air quality; construction impact and local history recognition.
 
This world-class Belfast Hub development will energise our city, providing journey experiences that enrich lives. It will act as a catalyst for regeneration, connecting and inspiring more people to live and work here.

Connecting People and Opportunities
From talking to the local community and other stakeholders we know how important it is to connect people with opportunities. The location is ideal to serve the City's two Universities and other leading educational facilities. It also provides access to healthcare services with links to the two main hospitals.
 
The developing design makes it easy for people to access links to South and West Belfast and into the city centre and will complement other key initiatives for the area such as the Urban Villages Regeneration scheme, the proposed Linen Quarter as well as local wayfinding trails, Public Realm and cycle initiatives that will encourage more use of public transport and active travel.
 
It will also support Belfast City Council's City Centre Regeneration and Investment Strategy with the Hub designated one of the 5 Special Action Areas in the City.
