Consultation has concluded


In 2021, we began the process of facilitating a review of the city's community plan, the Belfast Agenda. In addition to the legislative requirement to review the community plan, faced with the legacy of the Covid-19 pandemic and an on-going cost of living crisis, there has been a need to refocus on what partners can do collectively to make Belfast “a great place to live and work for everyone.”

Following extensive engagement with residents, the community and voluntary sector, statutory and non-statutory bodies including the private sector, we are pleased to be able to present a refreshed Belfast Agenda which outlines the city’s strategic direction from 2023-2027.

In response to feedback from our first community plan, we have also published a suite of action plans produced by partners with the intention that these will be updated annually and help track progress.

Have Your Say

Before the Community Planning Partnership signs off on the new Belfast Agenda, we are consulting with all stakeholders to ensure there is agreement that the strategy and actions focus on the right things and deliver the right outcomes for the people they are intended to benefit.

We are now pleased to present a new draft Belfast Agenda for formal consultation.

Please fill in our short survey and tell us what you think of the plan, our priorities and the proposed actions.

The consultation on the draft strategy close on 2 October. However, we are also consulting on our draft Equality Impact Assessment (EQIA), which considers any equality and good relations implications, and a draft rural needs impact assessment. This linked consultation will run until 30 October.

At the end of the consultation period, we will update the Belfast Agenda to take account of what we've heard and publish the document. However, you will still have the opportunity to get involved and have your say at different stages over the next year as we begin to develop and implement the Belfast Agenda actions.
