Public asked for their views on leisure centre signage
5 Nov 2019
Members of the public are being asked for their views on Council proposals to erect bilingual/multilingual signage at four Belfast leisure centres.
Following a special meeting of Belfast City Council on Friday 11 October, Members agreed to install multilingual welcome signs in all Council leisure centres.
Members also agreed to carry out a public consultation regarding bilingual/multilingual signage at Andersonstown, Lisnasharragh, Olympia and Templemore leisure centres.
It has also been proposed that internal directional signage at the leisure centres should include signage with pictures to enhance accessibility to new communities and disabled people.
The public consultation has been drawn up in line with Council’s Language Strategy and can be accessed via Council’s website www.belfastcity.gov.uk/consultations
The consultation is also seeking views on bilingual/multilingual signage at all Council leisure centres with a view to Council potentially developing a policy on leisure centre signage.
During the consultation period, which runs until 10 January 2020, members of the public will be able to attend a series of information and feedback events across the city.
Council is also hosting a number of focus groups with representatives from Irish Language and Ulster Scots groups, as well as representatives of disability and migrant forums.
