Clearly there has been a fair degree of interest generated by my piece regarding the intended fate of the Athletic Stores Building.

Lord Belmont yesterday had 1,300 visitors.

The plight of our built heritage and its insecurity at the hands of expedient planners is a challenge and an opportunity, for those of us who care, to send out a strong signal to these so-called planners that we are not lightly prepared to accept their rotten decisions in such matters.

A considerable number of buildings popping up are veritable eyesores, viz. the carbuncle attached to the Grand Opera House; which, presumably, attained the consent of Belfast "planners".

Those who share a desire to protect our built heritage may wish to get involved with the work of the Ulster Architectural Heritage Society and related campaigns.
