Opportunity to have your say on Enniskillen public realm scheme
24th November 2017
Initial ‘drop-in’ consultation events about the forthcoming Enniskillen Public Realm scheme will take place on Thursday 30 November 2017 from 12 noon to 4pm in the Townhall and 5pm to 8pm in Fermanagh House, Enniskillen.
£5.2 million has been made available by the Department for Communities and Fermanagh and Omagh District Council to improve and develop Enniskillen’s public realm to include footpaths, street lighting, landscaping and street furniture.
These initial public drop-in sessions will provide members of the public with the opportunity to share their ideas and general views and opinions on the potential opportunities for the scheme with the Integrated Consultancy Team (ICT), which has responsibility for bringing the public realm scheme through all stages from start to finish. Doran Consultancy Ltd has recently been appointed as the Project Manager of the ICT.
Anyone with an interest in the scheme is encouraged to take the opportunity to call in to one of the drop-in sessions and share their ideas.
The drop-in sessions are the first in a series of events and opportunities for members of the public to find out more and to share their thoughts on the Enniskillen Public Realm scheme. Further events to consider the preferred design option will be scheduled in the New Year.
Fermanagh and Omagh District Council has also established a Project Steering Group – chaired by Councillor Debbie Coyle and comprising the other Enniskillen District Electoral Area (DEA) Councillors Keith Elliott, Robert Irvine, Tommy Maguire, Patricia Rogers and Howard Thornton and six representatives of the local business community Roci Allen, Joe Kelly, Nuala Lilley, Noelle McAloon, Jonathan Poots and Jonathan Styles – which will work with the ICT to help bring the project forward.
The Council appreciates the willingness of these business representatives to participate in the Steering Group and would also wish to acknowledge the wider support from their nominating organisations – Enniskillen BID and Enniskillen Business Partnership.
