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

The Council recently approved a new Play Park Strategy 2021-which would 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 Lisbellaw have been identified as priority.

There are currently two play parks within Lisbellaw – Killreagh Road and Queen’s Park.  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 Lisbellaw.

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 Lisbellaw 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 in Lisbellaw Parish Centre on Monday 9 May 2022 from 8 pm – 9 pm. If you are unable to attend in person, residents can access the survey online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Lisbellaw.

The survey closes on Friday 13 May 2022 at 5.00pm.
