Duncairn Gardens Development Study

Consultation opened on 09 November 2022. Closing date 20 December 2022.


The Department for Communities (DfC) has engaged Carlin Planning Limited to undertake a Development Study for the Duncairn Gardens area of North Belfast.


Consultation description

This part of North Belfast is in need of physical, social and economic regeneration.  The wider study area includes the Tiger’s Bay and New Lodge communities extending to the Limestone Road and New Lodge Road.  The Development Study will seek to identify the key issues and opportunities and then put together a report that will recommend social, economic and environmental regeneration for the area. 

To date the team have been analysing the area and speaking to local stakeholders. We will be building on this over the next six weeks as we seek input from all those living and working in the area.

Please find a summary of the emerging findings which are detailed in the consultation boards above.

We are encouraging the local community including residents, businesses and local representatives to take part in the conversation about the future regeneration of the Duncairn Gardens area. Over the next six weeks we will be meeting with groups and organisations to seek their views.


We have created a short survey to gain the views of local people and this can be accessed via the respond online button.
