Plans are under way to turn a chunk of Belfast city centre into a pedestrianised area to include a cafe and bar, it can be revealed.

The area, which is based in and around Brunswick Street, could see a temporary cafe, bar, seating areas and a performance stage developed, if plans get approval

It's been proposed by Belfast Central Business District (BID) Ltd, for a temporary period.

The city centre has been hit hard due to the impact of coronavirus, with footfall dropping significantly as a large number of staff work from home.

A number of other businesses in the city have adapted to the restrictions and limitations brought about by Covid-19, including extending and developing outdoor seating areas, or in the case of the Boneyard and Cargo, have built entirely new outdoor bars to cope with social distancing.
