The Chair of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Thomas O’Reilly has launched the public consultation on the Council’s new Corporate Plan for the period 2024 – 2028.

The Corporate Plan sets the strategic direction for the Council for the next four years and identifies the Council’s priority areas of focus and associated actions.

The four priorities are:

· Climate Action: embed sustainability to ensure progress towards a Net Zero Council by 2040

· People & Communities; provide opportunities for everyone to live well

· Shared Prosperity: drive an inclusive economy and aid prosperity across our district

· One Council: ensure an efficient, effective and agile Council founded on good governance practices

Councillor Thomas O’Reilly explained ‘The Council’s success to date has been built on strong engagement with our communities to understand their needs. This plan affirms our shared vision for the district and sets out the priorities to determine the focus of the Council’s work over the next four years.

We will also ensure the Council is inclusive and adaptable, striving for continuous improvement and innovation, with a staff team who feel valued and whose important work is recognised and acknowledged’.

Chief Executive, Alison McCullagh, commented, ‘While acknowledging the challenging and uncertain environment in which we are operating, the Council remains forward and outward looking and committed to investing in the future. We have ambitious capital investment plans to improve local infrastructure and facilities for the benefit of all, and we will continue to

review and improve our service delivery to ensure that the organisation is in a position to meet the challenges ahead.

Challenges require decisive action and often necessitate changes in how we operate, but they also present opportunities to be innovative and more efficient’.

The Corporate Plan 2024-2028 provides a roadmap for the work of the Council over the next four years and the wider public are now being encouraged to have their say.
