Education Village & New “shared” Community / Education, Health & Leisure Centre

The Flax Trust continues to support The Education Task Group to develop a vision for Catholic Education in North Belfast. The vision is to build an ‘All Faith Education Village’. Having entered the Development Proposal stage which is great news, we have now carried out the Public Consultation with over 5500 votes cast for the New College. We are waiting for a government response to the people’s vote.

Flax Trust is working in collaboration with ABC Trust and Sports NI to develop proposals for a Community. Regeneration project, providing health, leisure, education, training and sports facilities and an arts centre.
