A plan exploring the potential for a wider network of Greenways across east Belfast was launched today, 11th October, at Belfast City Hall. Building on the success of the east Belfast regeneration project Connswater Community Greenway, one of only three projects in the UK to be awarded ‘Living Landmark’ status, the EastSide Greenways concept plan aims to influence and explore the potential for a wider network of Greenways linking into a city-wide and regional network.
