Belfast Agenda: Continuing the Conversation

1 Sep 2021 Déarbhla Sloan    Last updated: 1 Sep 2021

The Belfast Community Planning Partnership has started a review of the 2017 Belfast Agenda and they want to hear from you.

The Belfast Agenda, the city’s first community plan, aimed to set out a joint vision and outcomes for the future of the city. It was published in 2017 following a series of conversations and engagement with a wide variety of stakeholders.

Recently the CPP have started a review of the 2017 Belfast Agenda, and will be facilitating the co-design and delivery of an engagement programme.

Over the next 6 months, there will be three phases of engagement:

  1. Review the existing priorities
  2. Plan what needs to happen next
  3. Consult on next steps and plan

A number of workshops titled “Belfast Agenda: Continuing the Conversation” have now been confirmed for early September. The Belfast Community Planning Partnership has commissioned public participation specialists Involve to develop and independently facilitate these workshops. These discussions will feed into subsequent phases which will seek to co-design delivery action plans and a refreshed Belfast Agenda by March 2022.

The first engagement stage will focus on:

  • Revisiting the priorities to deliver the vision, outcomes and ambitions in the Belfast Agenda
  • Understanding what has changed and what has stayed the same
  • Gathering information on what the short term focus should be
  • Ensuring that the long-term vision and outcomes are still relevant and meaningful.

You can register now for a place in the first phase workshops.
