It's just been announced that the Belfast City Council will be paying for the security surrounding the barricade around the fire ravaged Bank Buildings to the tune of £100,000, as far as we know the fire was started by a contractor working for Primark, that being the case why are the tax payers of Belfast paying for this security barrier? Why is Primark or their insurance company paying not paying for it?....and where did BCC find this £100.000?
God Bless President Trump! God Bless Israel....and God Bless Big Rosie up our street!!!

"According to BBC NI, the council intends to recover the security costs - calculated at £100,000 - from Primark."

"Belfast mayor Deirdre Hargey said: "We are engaging with Primark and working around that."

"We know they've given half a million pounds in a support package and we'll be continuing to work in partnership with them in the time ahead"

Perhaps it's time to demolish the building, cordon it off and allow traders in and around the area to get back to some semblance of normality. Xmas is coming and a lot of smaller businesses in Belfast rely on the Xmas period to balance the books.  ::)  Nice building as it was, it's time to move on.  :)

Primark planning pre-Christmas comeback with 'new look' Belfast store

Another retailer has been asked to vacate the premises

Primark has plans for a new-look Belfast store just in time for the Christmas rush.

The retail giant is believed to have bought Fountain House with the proviso New Look is out by the end of November.

M&G Property Portfolio were asking £14.75m for the B1 listed Donegall Place premises, and it is understood they paid close to that price.

Yes jjmack-very sad to have lost a building such as this-but then for years the planners have
succeeded in destroying many other beautiful buildings which would never have been tolerated
in other Capitol cities-just Belfast.
So your correct in what you say-time is of the essence and Christmas is the time for businesses to
be up and running.
Also,the City needs to look good for Christmas-its a very special time for a lot of people.

it WAS a nice old building with an interesting front facade but peoples livelihoods are a lot more important, so its time to pull it down..Im getting the feeling that people are starting to stay away from the city centre in protest now at the inaction and indecsision, I can see this one running for years.

HAVE NOT LIVED OVER THERE SINCE 74 BUT IT WOULD BE A SHAME IF THEY DID NOT DO SOMETHING.  THEY COULD TRY AND SAVE IT.  JUST BECAUSE  IT'S  2018 DOES NOT MEAN  THEY HAVE TO  BECOME  MODERN IN THEIR BUILDINGS  , BELFAST IS AN OLD CITY AND  IF THEY CAN THEY SHOULD TRY AND SAVE IT AND IN A HURRY SO PEOPLE CAN GET BACK TO WORK AGAIN, CHRISTMAS IS COMING AND THEY NEED MONEY .  LIZ :-*

Being the second city to the capital Dublin, Belfast should try and hold on to its old buildings. Keep the facade.....and rebuild behind. 👍

Secretary of State said the fire was an act of God.  Yeah, as if he was in heaven with nothing to do but start a fire in a Belfast shop.   There is wiser eating grass. :P :P :P

Think they should just knock it down. Others business badly affected. Street blocked, and footfall down. Time to say goodbye and bring in the wrecking ball.
