Great Place North Belfast

The North Belfast Heritage Cluster is a group of fourteen non-profit Listed Building owners on the Donegall Street, Clifton Street and Crumlin Road axis. These streets represent one of the few ways into North Belfast.

The discussion will introduce the current Heritage Fund project and its work, and look especially at the urban issues of remaking junctions and healing severance. Critical to all this work has been to develop walking and cycling routes for North Belfast to connect to the rest of the city. The project looks at wider themes of health, wellbeing and how communities of interest can stimulate positive transition.
