Englishman Clive Dutton was an urban planner who was best known for work in Birmingham, London (Newham), and Belfast. He produced “The Dutton Report” in 2004 and “The Big Plan” (the cover of which is pictured in the mural) in 2013. In them, he proposed and then updated a plan to tackle economic deprivation in west Belfast by the creation of a ‘Gaeltacht Quarter’ or ‘Ceathrú Gaeltachta’. He died on June 8th at the age of 62 and the mural above has been painted in remembrance. The mural is based on this photo.
The (2004) Dutton Report is available from Forbairt Feirste and the (2013) Big Plan from the department of Culture, Arts, And Leisure. The Big Plan was celebrated with a mural featured previously.
