Former Shore Road tram depot, Belfast
The Belfast tramways closed in February 1954. The Shore depot was demolished and now consists of a large area of overgrown hardstanding and some bits of brickwork facing the Shore Road.
The site and the adjacent park, playing fields and leisure centre had been the subject of the following application for planning permission: “Z/2009/1607/F Mixed used development comprising superstore; Petrol Filling Station; 4 no. retail warehouse units; residential development (32 no. townhouses and 36 no. apartments) and recreational facility to include floodlit 3G pitch, grass pitch, Multi Use Games Area, 3no. outdoor fitness stations, children's play park and junior play area to be served by pavilion comprising changing facilities and community rooms and a CCTV traffic monitoring camera, all with associated car parking and landscaping at Loughside Playing Fields, Shore Road, Belfast and redevelopment of disused space at Mount Vernon to provide all weather multi-use pitch; picnic area; senior and junior play area and local events area at Mount Vernon, Shore Road, Belfast and related associated infrastructure improvements.
