Community Planning

Community Planning

The purpose of Community planning is to develop a long term vision and plan to improve quality of life in the Fermanagh and Omagh district based on a thorough analysis of needs and priorities. Community planning brings together partner organisations from the public, private and community/voluntary sectors working with local communities to deliver better public services.  Further information on Community Planning can be accessed here.

As the lead partner, the Council is responsible for making arrangements for community planning in its area. You can find out more about the statutory duty here.

The “Fermanagh Omagh 2030″ Community Plan is the overarching plan for the Fermanagh and Omagh district, bringing together the knowledge, expertise and collective resources of a wide range of partners, all working towards a single agreed vision. Please click here to view an interactive online version of the Plan.

A copy of our Community Planning Governance Framework and Guidance can be accessed here.

The Fermanagh Omagh 2030 Community Plan can be downloaded here. You can also access a copy of the most recent Strategic Partnership Board meetings here.

What Matters Most to Me! Schools Competition 

We are engaging with children and young people to help us prioritise the key issues identified in the Fermanagh and Omagh Community Plan 2030.  We are inviting students to participate in our Arts Creativity Campaign – What matters most to be me?  We have sent packs to all primary schools in the Fermanagh and Omagh District.  However, the information can also be downloaded here. 

Students simply read the priorities identified in the information and pick which is most important to them.  They tell us what it means to them and why it is most important in 5o words or draw a picture of what is the most important thing to them, from the list. Teachers can then either a) scan and send entries to (please keep originals encase we need them) b) drop entries into either the Townhall Enniskillen or the Grange, Omagh or c) post them to Community Planning and Performance Team, Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Fermanagh Office, Townhall, 2 Townhall Street, Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh, BT74 7BA or Omagh Office, The Grange, Mountjoy Road, Lisnamallard, Omagh, Co Tyrone, BT79 7BL.
