Redevelopment of The Village, Belfast :: J3273

The Village area of Belfast is due to undergo a major redevelopment starting in 2011. This is an extract from an official announcement:
“Ritchie approves £100million investment for South Belfast
Wednesday, 30 December 2009
Minister for Social Development, Margaret Ritchie MLA, has today approved proposals for the £100million investment package to regenerate housing across the Village area of South Belfast . . . . . .
As part of this investment, 538 old homes, many unfit for further occupation, will be demolished and replaced by 273 new homes, built to the latest design and environmental standards. A number of other homes across the area will also be refurbished as part of wider plans that will be delivered over the coming years. “
The photographs submitted by me appear as a matter of record only. I have no connection with the DSD or any of the other parties involved in the scheme. They should not be interpreted as having any political or campaigning motive.
