Have your say on local services in your area

Published: 22nd June 2015

What service improvements would you like to see in your local community?

That’s the question 114,000+ residents of the Fermanagh and Omagh district are being asked over the next number of months to help inform the development of a Community Plan for the Fermanagh and Omagh district.

The Community Plan will act as a framework to develop and promote the long-term economic, social and environmental well-being and sustainability of the Fermanagh and Omagh district.

Community Planning, a new role taken on by the 11 new Councils under the reform of local government, involves Fermanagh and Omagh District Council working in partnership with local communities and a range of partner organisations, including health, education and housing providers, to improve local services for local people.

To ensure the Community Plan reflects the needs of local residents, a number of public meetings have been organised across the district over the coming weeks and months to identify the social, economic and environmental needs and priorities of the district.

Encouraging people to come along to the public meetings, the Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Thomas O’Reilly, said:

“The  new Community Planning duty gives people a wonderful opportunity to have a real input into how services in their local area are both planned for and delivered. I urge people to come along to the meetings in their area to make their feelings known on matters which are important to them.

We want to hear from people of all ages and all backgrounds, to make sure that the new Community Plan reflects their local needs.   The effectiveness of the Community Plan will rely on the information provided to us by our residents; therefore the importance of local community input cannot be underestimated.”

All meetings are open to the public and everyone is welcome.

The first series of these engagement meetings begin on Monday 22 June 2015. For a schedule of community meetings and further information please visit www.fermanaghomagh.com/communityplan.
