The Department for Communities today offers the public the chance to have their say on how the Duncairn Gardens area can be physically improved over the coming years through a six-week public consultation exercise.
Carlin were appointed and have completed an initial engagement process with local communities, businesses, statutory bodies and other stakeholders. Having collated a lot of information and ideas, our consultants now wish to share the initial findings and develop the ideas into meaningful projects with the help of local people.
Announcing the consultation, a spokesperson for the Department said:
“The Duncairn Gardens area of north Belfast has seen a physical decline over the last number of years. Prompted by issues around vacant land and the closure of the large building owned by Invest NI, the Department has commissioned a study which, in liaison with the local community, hopes to improve the area.
“This work not only seeks to improve the physical environment but provides communities with the opportunity to have their say on local provisions. Initial comprehensive work has now been completed and, over the next six weeks, people from the local communities, businesses and the wider public can influence the future of their area.”
