City Centre Masterplan Review
The regeneration of Lisburn City Centre remains a key priority for the Council. We are seeking your views and feedback on our revised City Centre Masterplan on the way forward for Lisburn City Centre.
In line with the development of the Lisburn Castlereagh Community Plan, the Local Development Plan and trends in retailing and spending patterns, it is now important to review the strategic context of the Masterplan originally developed in 2010.
The purpose of the original Masterplan was to provide a vision for the City to develop a range of facilities and attractions that are expected of a regionally significant city to reach its full economic potential. Since its launch there has been considerable progress made on the projects included within it. Phase one was the City Centre Public Realm Scheme which saw a popular events space created in Market Square. It also featured plans for the comprehensive redevelopment of the Laganbank Quarter which is included within the review document.

Through Local Government Reform the new Council have a significantly increased role in urban regeneration and community development. This responsibility will transfer from the Department for Social Development in 2017. Schemes will include town and city regeneration and area-based regeneration schemes.
Whilst the Council continues to progress ongoing regeneration projects and City Centre initiatives, along the Lagan Corridor and across other areas of the City, we work continually to identify new regeneration initiatives that will enhance the new Council area and support economic growth and development. We continue to work with many partners and stakeholders to ensure that economic and environmental regeneration opportunities are fully utilised for the benefit of the whole Council area.
The Regeneration Programme delivers the following initiatives. For more information click on the links below:
