Belfast Agenda

Belfast Agenda

Belfast Agenda - Belfast’s first community plan 

 Consultation closed on Thursday 20 April 2017


Community planning is a new responsibility we took on as a result of local government reform. It’s about making sure that public services work together with communities to deliver real improvements for local people. 

Over the past two years, we have been asking residents in Belfast to tell us what kind of city they want for the future and what the things we should be focusing on now are to make this happen. People told us that they want a city that provides a high quality of life for everyone who lives here and for the city to be a great place to work, study, visit or set up and grow your business. 

The Belfast Agenda was created by a partnership of key city partners, residents and community organisations. The plan sets out our joint vision and long-term ambitions for Belfast’s future, as well as outlining our priorities for action over the next four years. 

During early 2017, we held an 18 week public consultation, asking people to tell us what they thought about the draft Belfast Agenda including:


  • A new draft vision for Belfast
  • Long term outcomes that we want for Belfast in 2035
  • Ambitions that we want to achieve by 2035
  • Priorities that we should be focusing on for the next 4 years. 


The public consultation closed on 20th April 2017. We are currently analysing the feedback to help us improve the plan and make sure that it truly reflects the shared ambitions of people and communities from across Belfast.
