Gaeltacht Quarter street signs

  • Gaeltacht Quarter Street Signs Project

    We approved a proposal for the erection of dual language nameplates in Irish for all streets within the Gaeltacht Quarter in Belfast. This proposal was approved at the Strategic Policy and Resources Committee on 20 October 2023.

    This decision means that the normal process requiring individual applications and surveys for dual language street signs will not be required for those streets in the Gaeltacht Quarter. The proposed approach approved by the council is to erect dual language street signs in Irish in all streets within the Gaeltacht Quarter subject to considering the views of the occupiers of the street.

    There are currently 122 streets in the Gaeltacht Quarter already approved with dual language street signs erected, with 302 streets remaining which are subject to this approach.

    We are writing to occupiers of each identified address in the remaining streets within the Gaeltacht Quarter, one letter per household, explaining the decision. If occupiers are satisfied with this approach, they do not need to do anything. But if occupiers wish to object to this approach, they can contact the council as outlined in the letter.

    If you do not receive this letter and your street is one of the remaining streets on the list, you can call 028 9027 0650 or email gaeltachtquarter@belfastcity.gov.uk to receive a copy of the letter and the response slip.

    Closing date for Gaeltacht Quarter responses

    The closing date for objections to our approach is 4pm on Friday 23 February 2024. Responses received after this time will not be considered.
