Ballybeen Community Plan
This Development Plan for the Ballybeen area was produced between February and June, 2013. Local residents, groups and other stakeholders put forward their views about how they would like to see Ballybeen develop over the next five years. This process was assisted by the Ballybeen Improvement Group (BIG) and EBCDA, and was facilitated by Community Places.
Ballybeen is located on the outskirts of East Belfast in Castlereagh Borough Council and is part of the Belfast Metropolitan Urban Area and the East Belfast Constituency. In 2015, as part of the Reform of Public Administration Ballybeen will become part of the newly formed Lisburn City and Castlereagh District Council. Ballybeen lies within the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust; the South Eastern Education and Library Board; within the PEACE III cluster of Lisburn; and the East Belfast Community Development Agency is the local Community Development Network.
