Next stage of Community Planning public meetings to begin

Published: 8th September 2015

A series of community meetings have been organised by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council across the district to update residents on social, economic and environmental needs and priorities identified to date as part of the Community Planning process.

The first of these public meetings will take place on Thursday 10 September 2015, at Hospital Road Community Centre, Omagh, 7 pm. This meeting will focus on the economic priorities of the Fermanagh and Omagh district identified so far.

These priorities have been identified through a series of community engagement meetings, which took place across the district in June, July and August, and data and statistics gathered by Smart Region. A review of the strategy context of the Fermanagh and Omagh district by McClure Watters and evidence and views submitted by partner agencies will also help to formulate the draft economic priorities.

Community Planning is a process which helps public agencies to work together with the community to plan for and deliver better services. Fermanagh and Omagh District Council facilitates this process, working in partnership with local communities and a range of partner organisations, to develop a Community Plan for the area.

The public meeting at Hospital Road Community Centre on September 10 is an opportunity to contribute to the priorities which should be considered in the new Community Plan for the district.

Further thematic Community Planning meetings will take place across the Fermanagh and Omagh district in September and October.

All meetings are open to the public and everyone is welcome. There will also be a period of public consultation on the draft Community Plan next Spring/Summer for anyone unable to attend a community meeting during this phase.
