Council seeks views to inform development of play parks in Dromore

15th April 2022

Dromore Village

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is seeking the views of residents in Dromore 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 Dromore have been identified as priority.

There are currently two play parks within Dromore – Dromore village and Fairview. 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 Dromore.

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 Dromore 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 online survey.”

The drop-in session will take place as follows:

Tuesday 26TH April

Dromore Sports Complex                                                  8-9pm

If you are unable to attend in person, residents can access the online survey by visiting

The survey closes on 18 May 2022
