Belfast King’s Hall development project gets the go-ahead

Published on 17th December 2020

Belfast City Council has approved major planning applications at the landmark King’s Hall, Ligoniel Park and along the Westlink.

At this week’s Planning Committee, councillors approved the building of a care home and housing estate at the King’s Hall site, the decommissioning of Boodle’s Dam to integrate it into Ligoniel Park, and a new community space between Peter’s Hill and Regent Street called the Bullring.

Councillors unanimously approved the erection of a care home with associated car parking, servicing, landscape and access off Balmoral Avenue.

The four-storey U-shaped building forms part of the wider redevelopment plan for the King’s Hall complex masterplan.

The building will sit adjacent to the approved building for supported accommodation for older people which is under construction, around 100 metres behind the listed King’s Hall.
