PEACE IV Shared Spaces Capital projects
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 primary objective of the programme is to promote positive relations characterised by respect, where cultural diversity is celebrated and people can live, learn and socialise together, free from prejudice, hate and intolerance.
The programme is financed through the European Union and managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).
We have secured £8.79 million PEACE IV funding. Of this, £3,067,000 is specifically for the creation of a 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.
We are currently engaging with community organisations in the Glencairn, Forthriver, Ballygomartin, Springfield Road and Bog Meadows areas on our plans for the development of the shared spaces project.
