Planning approval for McAdam Design and Daniel Libeskind-designed £18m scheme at Maze Long Kesh

A major public-funded scheme in Northern Ireland has been granted planning approval today. The Peace building and Conflict Resolution Centre (PbCRC) and associated conservation works at the Maze Long Kesh site in County Down have been designed by Daniel Libeskind and McAdam Design (Belfast) and will be wholly funded through a £18m grant by the European Union’s PEACE III Programme.

Martin Hare, Director of McAdam Design, said: “This timely planning approval signals the continued commitment shown by DOE Planning and wider statutory authorities to support the regeneration of the whole of the MLK site and to provide a catalyst for significant inward investment into the local economy in terms of jobs and infrastructure. With Daniel Libeskind’s continued and ongoing involvement in the scheme I believe PbCRC will deliver the varied and numerous aspirations of all the stakeholders involved in this project.”
