About that Titanic proposal..

The £100million plan for development of a Titanic tourist project in Belfast’s docklands area was heavily publicised in the media yesterday.. and the BBC report is online here. With a nice drawing too. But reading closely, there is no breakdown of the figures for private/public funding and, despite the reported unveiling of the plan by Belfast City Council and the Northern Ireland Tourist Board in the article, it currently only has the backing of Tourism sub-committee – the proposal, and an economic feasibility study, still has to clear the full council on 1 September. Be nice to see more details of the proposals.. somewhere. No mention of that Iceberg though…
