The chief executive of Belfast Chamber has urged councillors to reconsider deferring a decision on the controversial £500m Tribeca development in the Cathedral Quarter.

But campaign group Save Cathedral Quarter, which is opposed to the project, has welcomed what it says is recognition from Belfast city councillors of issues including provision for social housing in the 12-acre scheme.

Belfast City Council's planning committee voted this week to defer a decision. Councillors had previously backed amendments to the plan in January.
