Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is seeking the views of residents in Belleek to inform the future development of play facilities in the village and has arranged a drop-in consultation session to enable residents to make their views known.

The Council approved a new Play Park Strategy in 2021 which will guide the future provision, upgrade, development and sustainable management of play parks across the district.  As part of year two works for the strategy, development of the play areas in Belleek have been identified as priority.

There are currently three play parks within Belleek – St Davog’s, Daly Park and the Community Centre.  The draft proposals envisage the upgrade and modernisation of the parks, creating a more inclusive, fun and enjoyable play experience for all children and young people; recognising the changing demographics within Belleek.

Councillor Errol Thompson, Chair of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council said;

“The play strategy aims to develop and deliver a sustainable action plan for inclusive and accessible play spaces and provision across the district that meets the needs of all our children and young people.

I would encourage the residents of Belleek to make their views known on the plans for play facilities in the village either by attending the drop-in session or by completing the survey online.”

The drop-in session will take place at Belleek Community Centre on Thursday 12 May 2022 from 8pm – 9pm. If you are unable to attend in person, residents can access the survey online by visiting  https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Belleek.

The online survey closes on 20 May 2022 at 5.00pm.
