In May 2014, 60 councillors were elected to represent the people of Belfast in the expanded city. Following a shadow period, the new Belfast City Council officially came into place on 1 April 2015.

We now serve an additional 53,000 residents with an overall population of 333,000. We are also responsible for new powers and services, including land-use planning, community planning and off-street parking. From 2016, we'll also have responsibility for enhanced economic, physical and social regeneration.
