An enhancement project delivered under the Covid Recovery Small Settlement Regeneration Programme has recently been completed in Carrickmore, thanks to an investment of over £130,000.

Supported by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, the capital funding has enabled improvements to the avenue at Termon Business Centre, including extending footpaths that lead directly into the centre of Carrickmore.

The Council is committed to ensuring that the district is welcoming and the economy is thriving, expanding and outward looking.  The regeneration of small villages is vitally important and through this programme of investment, will ensure that our rural communities can contribute to build a more inclusive, sustainable and resilient local economy.

Councillor Barry McElduff, Chair of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council commented:

“I am delighted that the Council, through the Covid Recovery Small Settlement Regeneration Programme, has been able to provide funding to improve villages across the district.

This rejuvenation project has improved connectivity between Termon Business Park and the village of Carrickmore.

This has helped greatly to make Carrickmore an even more accessible place to do business in and to make Carrickmore an attractive and welcoming place for visitors

It has had a clear, positive impact for the local, business community.”

Further projects totalling £2.5million will be delivered across 14 villges in the coming months across a geographical spread within the district.

This includes other village enhancement projects such as supporting property owners with improvements and frontage screening on community premises, sports facilities, village amenities and other infrastructure.

The Covid Recovery Small Settlement Regeneration Programme is funded by the Council in partnership with the Department for Communities (DfC), the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) and the Department for Infrastructure (DfI), and aims to deliver projects which result in positive, visual impacts and assist small settlements to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic.
