Plans to expand and reconfigure elements of the Titanic Belfast and the Odyssey Pavilion complex in the Titanic Quarter of Belfast have been lodged with the city council.

They are due to be advertised in the local press this week (26 May).

The proposals include a new main entrance to the Odyssey Pavilion, extension/reconfiguration of adjoining ground and first-floor units and the provision of external seating terraces. The public realm is set to get an upgrade.

Also proposed is the extension, integration and alteration of Titanic Pavilions (no.3 and no.4) including change of use from retail to provide additional conferencing facilities for the adjacent Titanic Belfast.

Tim Husbands, chief executive of Titanic Belfast, said: "At Titanic Belfast, we do not rest on our laurels and are continuously looking at ways to enhance our five-star facilities for the thousands of local, national and international tourists we welcome on an annual basis.

"We look forward to revealing this development in due course, subject to planning permission."

The planning references for the scheme are LA04/2017/0753/F and LA04/2017/0717/F.
