Belfast Corporation built six Sub Controls between 1954 and 1956 each reporting to the Corporation main control in the former Regional War Room in Mount Eden Park. The Sub Control remained operational until the disbanding of the Civil Defence Corps in 1968 and is now used as a government document store.
