Focal Point Extra Monday 22 January 2018

The first of two news programmes.

After decades of neglect and failed attempts by previous developers a major part of Belfast city centre is about to undergo regeneration.

A proposed £400m mixed use redevelopment by Castlebrooke Investments comprising retail, leisure, residential, community and office space across 12 acres bound by Royal Avenue, Donegall Street, North Street, Lower Garfield Street and High Street.

In this programme we look at the planning process and procedures and in the next programme (Tuesday 23rd January), we examine the proposals for the area.
