Fortwilliam Temporary Park and Ride - consultation

Consultation opened on 07 March 2018. Closing date 09 May 2018.


The Department for Infrastructure (DfI) is proposing to build a temporary Park and Ride facility incorporating approximately 500 spaces as part of advanced works to improve public transport options for commuters during the proposed York Street Interchange construction works.


Consultation description

The site is located on lands currently to the east of 41 Dargan Road and south of the former landfill site at the North Foreshore, Belfast BT3.

The Department intends to seek planning approval for the proposed temporary Park and Ride as a “major” development.  The Planning Act (Northern Ireland) 2011 places a statutory duty on applicants to consult the community prior to submitting a planning application for a “major” development.

Further details of the proposals will be provided at the planned Open House event and public exhibition, details of which are provided below.

As part of the pre-application community consultation process an ‘Open House’ public consultation event has been arranged to take place on:

  • Wednesday 7 March 2018 from 10.30 am to 5.30 pm at Grove Library, Grove Wellbeing Centre, 120 York Road, Belfast, BT15 3HF

The proposed scheme will also be put on public exhibition at the Grove Library from Thursday 8 March to Wednesday 9 May 2018.

Feedback sheets and post-boxes will be provided at the ‘Open House’ and Public Exhibition events to enable individuals to submit their comments about the proposed Park & Ride.
