These Area Based Plans have been developed to inform you about The Executive Office’s, Urban Villages Initiative investment across capital projects, community led and cross cutting programmes in each of the five Urban Village areas in Belfast and Derry~Londonderry, and to provide you with an understanding of the impact of the programme on people and places.


Illustrated maps provide a clear visual of project investment across the core areas and the plan reflects how public sector and community are working better together to improve and animate the Urban Village areas and developing thriving places.

The plan can also be used to inform future private and public sector investment providing opportunity to stimulate economic and social benefit.

Working better together to create thriving places spanning and connecting communities and cultures. The Urban Villages Initiative is one of seven headlines actions under the Together: Building a United Community (T:buc) Strategy.
