Giant's Park Belfast Ltd (GPBL) has submitted a proposal of application notice (PAN) to Belfast City Council for plans for a proposed visitor attraction in Giant's Park in Belfast that would include a leisure hub and a theme park.
As reported by The Irish News, it was originally hoped that the proposed visitor attraction would cost £93 million and be completed by 2026.
However, GPBL has now said that the proposed attraction, which is planned to be located on 250 acres of land at Giant's Park and consist of four zones including the aforementioned leisure hub and theme park, will cost £180 million.
In addition to submitting a PAN, GPBL has organised several online webinars as part of a public consultation phase that will precede the submission of a full planning application later in 2021.
The first phase of GBPL's plans consists of a hotel, fast food outlets and a petrol station.
The second phase includes the theme park, which is planned to be called Giant's Adventure Park, and an equestrian centre.
The third phase involves the construction of a research and development park that is planned to offer 400,000 square feet of business space.
