Barnetts Demesne, Belfast - Trail Information Meeting

17 Apr 2013 10:00 AM | Rick McKee (Administrator)
Many NIMBA members attended a public meeting at Belfast Activity Centre on Wednesday 17 April, where Belfast City Council and Outdoor Recreation NI outlined the background and rationale for the new mountain biking trails and dirt jumps in Barnetts Demesne, which are set to launch on 26 April.

Belfast City Council, represented by Anne Reid and Stephen Walker, were open about the project being the start of what is very much a new type of initiative for the Council, and one where ongoing engagement with bikers (and indeed other users of the park) would be of crucial importance to maximise the potential.

The session concluded with an open question and answer session, and NIMBA welcomes this type of public meeting.  The only disappointment on the evening was that more bikers were not able to attend.

Belfast City Council will be establishing some kind of feedback forum going forward, and NIMBA will play a role in that if it is deemed worthwhile by Council and other stakeholders.
