Deadline approaching to have say on community development for the district

Published: 19th February 2016

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is encouraging residents to share their views on future community development for the district.

A programme of public meetings have taken place over the last number of days in towns and villages in each of the District Electoral Areas, namely Lisnaskea, Fintona, Omagh, Gortin, Enniskillen, Irvinestown and Belcoo.

The public meetings provided residents and representatives from public agencies and the community and voluntary sector the opportunity to have their say on future community development for the district.  Information gathered at these meetings will be used by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council to develop a new Community Development Strategy 2016-2019 for the district.  The strategy will outline how the Council will deliver community development support to groups and promote Good Relations across the district in the future.

For those who were unable to attend a public meeting, an online survey is available to complete on the Council’s website until 5pm, Friday 4 March 2016. Hard copies of the survey are also available upon request from the Council’s Community Services team.

Encouraging people to share their views before the March 4 deadline, a spokesperson for Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, said:

“Good community development strengthens local communities, helping them to address social, economic and environmental issues in their area and improve overall health and well-being of residents.

We have been delighted with the response from members of the public and representatives from public agencies and the community and voluntary sector at our series of public meetings. We want our new Community Development Strategy to accurately reflect the needs of communities in the Fermanagh and Omagh district and encourage anyone who has not yet engaged in the consultation process to complete the survey on the Council’s website or make direct contact with a member of the Community Services team.”

The online community development survey is available to complete until 5.00 pm, Friday 4 March 2016. Alternatively, hard copies of the survey are available from the Council’s Community Services team by telephoning 0300 303 1777.
