Belfast Agenda

Belfast Agenda

Belfast Agenda - Belfast’s first community plan 

 Consultation deadline extended to 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. 

Over the coming months we want as many people as possible to tell us what they think about the Belfast Agenda. This will help us improve the plan and make sure that it truly reflects the shared ambitions of people and communities from across Belfast.

Have your say

If you live, work, study or have a business in Belfast, then the Belfast Agenda affects you. 

We want to hear your views as we seek to improve the Belfast Agenda. We want to know what you think about our proposed: 

  • vision for Belfast

  • ambitions that we want to achieve by 2035 
  • priorities that we should be focusing on for the next 4 years 
You can share your views by completing our online questionnaire on our Your Say consultation hub.

The consultation is open until Thursday 20 April 2017 - extended from 31 March 2017.
