Physical Investment Programme
Our physical investment programme is a city-wide £325 million commitment to making Belfast a better place to live, work, visit and invest. The programme, which encompasses around 350 projects, is backed by all political parties and includes major schemes to boost the economy, create jobs and improve quality of life in our neighbourhoods.
Our physical programme is not simply about building new facilities or assets. Investment decisions are taken in line with the strategic aims and objectives of the Belfast Agenda, the city’s first community plan which sets out a vision for Belfast in 2035.
The programme falls into five main areas:
A significant rolling programme of investment to improve existing council facilities or provide new facilities.
This programme offers funding to local projects which aim to make a real difference in people’s lives at a neighbourhood level by addressing local community need.
This programme aims to encourage additional investment from other sectors for projects that help to develop or regenerate facilities for people who live in, invest in or visit our city.
We manage project delivery for projects from a number of central government programmes in the city including Social Investment Fund, Urban Villages and Building Successful Communities. We also deliver Heritage Lottery Fund projects in the city.
The PEACE IV Programme is an EU funded cross-border initiative designed to support peace and reconciliation in Northern Ireland and the border region. The programme is financed through the European Union and managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).
We have secured £3,067,000 million under the ‘Shared Spaces and Services’ theme to create an exciting shared space project focusing on 12 interlinked sites stretching from Glencairn to Bog Meadows and incorporating a core project located at the Springfield Road interface, taking in Springfield Dam, Springfield Park, the Invest NI site and connecting to Paisley Park.
