20 July 2017
The Department of Communities and Local Government has not had any contact with Belfast City Council since 8 June 2017.
However, officials from the department met with Belfast City Council and the Northern Ireland Office to discuss the deal.
The Department works with territorial offices in relation to city deals in devolved administrations including in Northern Ireland and we stand ready to support the development of a Belfast deal.
