The Council seeks feedback on the ambitious Fermanagh Lakeland Forum Redevelopment proposal

22nd November 2022

Fermanagh Lakeland Forum

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is undertaking a public consultation ahead of a planning application for the redevelopment of the Fermanagh Lakeland Forum, Enniskillen.

The Forum redevelopment will aim to deliver a wide range of indoor and outdoor leisure and recreation activities, promote health and wellbeing and increase access to Lough Erne with the inclusion of an active waterfront area.

The development will also include an Activity Park that will be designed to complement and enhance the natural and historical landscape and increase biodiversity. The Lakeland Forum’s inclusive intergenerational offer will increase accessibility and promote community engagement, physical activity, and healthy lifestyles.

Designed to Passive House standards, the proposed development is a bold statement in advancing the Council’s sustainability ambitions. As a high-quality visitor attraction, the facility and Activity Park will increase dwell time in Enniskillen, enhancing links between the site and the retail core, positively contributing to place-shaping, town centre regeneration, and the local tourism offer. New cycling and walking routes will also improve the facility’s connection to the town centre, facilitating movement and active travel.

The public consultation runs from Monday 28 November 2022 until 12 noon on Monday 19 December 2022.

You can feedback on the proposal via an online survey which is available through the Council’s website or at a public drop-in event that will take place on Tuesday 29 November 2022 between 1 pm – 4 pm and 5 pm – 8 pm at the Fermanagh Lakeland Forum.
