Belfast Hills Partnership received funding to develop a Strategic Rural Tourism Project.
Belfast Hills Partnership received funding under Axis 3 through Lagan Rural Partnership, to develop a rural tourism project at Belfast Hills Partnership. The pathways are a fantastic development as it provides tourists with the opportunity to truly appreciate the beauty of the Belfast Hills.
In order to enhance their existing services, Belfast Hills Partnership received funding to roll out a series of cultural initiatives that utilises the heritage landscape as an important social health, cultural and tourist resource.
Belfast Hills Partnership is based at the Social Economy Village and work together in raising the profile of the Hills.
Belfast Hills Partnership was awarded funding to complete capital works on site, launch a heritage event, printing of marketing resources as well as interpretative signage.
Much of the heritage of Belfast Hills remains very out of bounds, with some important sites being either on private land or being difficult to access. Therefore the aim of this project was to provide 360 degree photography of heritage sites, 3D images of artefacts and generally provide accessible, interactive and attractive information relating to the Belfast Hills rural heritage.
The Belfast Hills Partnership is made up of local councils, government departments, community groups, nature conservation organisations and businesses committed to caring for the Belfast Hills, their wildlife and people.
The applicant received funding to develop an interactive website in order to educate people about the importance of the Belfast Hills heritage and the need to conserve and restore it for future generations.
