Work has been ongoing in the York Street /Frederick Street area to build the new Ulster University Campus, student accommodation blocks and a new car park. All of this is already bringing inevitable negative impacts and challenges for nearby residents. Further serious disruption is expected to occur with the planned construction of the nearby York Street Interchange. Current indications are that the Interchange work could begin within the next two years and will last over three years.
The area of highest impact includes approximately 400 homes, from Frederick Street to Henry Street, including North Queen Street and the Sailortown area.
In response to these developments the Ashton Community Trust recently commissioned a research study to gather the opinions of local people living in the affected areas. That research has now been completed.
You are cordially invited to attend a public meeting Wednesday 20th February at 7.00pm Bunscoil Lancaster Street where the findings of this important report will be presented.
The intention is to use the survey findings to highlight the needs, issues and concerns of local residents as recorded in the survey and to demand greater social, physical and environmental protections for them in the short, medium and long term. Your attendance would be greatly appreciated.
