14 images of demolition work today at Havelock House, the former home of UTV

Diggers have this morning started to demolish Havelock House in Belfast, the former home of UTV.

The site on the Ormeau Road in Belfast is being cleared after plans were submitted by Lotus Property and developed with the Clanmill Housing Association to build around 100 social homes, subject to planning permission.

Built in 1871 as a hemstitching warehouse, Havelock House became the home of UTV in 1959, until the broadcaster relocated to Belfast’s City Quays in 2018.

A local campaign group had opposed the plans to demolish the building, which is not listed.
