Omagh Place Shaping Plan brings together expertise from a diverse range of partners with different knowledge and interests to help shape the development of Enniskillen for the next 10-15 years. Fermanagh and Omagh Community Planning Partnership approved the Omagh Place Shaping Plan 2035, on 14 November 2022. Its shared ambition is:

“Omagh will become an increasingly vibrant, healthy, attractive and inclusive town. A reimagined and animated green heart for the district, enhanced by progressive regeneration and revitalisation

Evidence Base

The Place Shaping process is founded on data and evidence led decision making practices. Significant spatial and economic analysis including a review of key statistics such as the towns current and predicted demographic profile, a town centre health check and its development potential took place.  You can download a copy of the detailed Baseline Analysis report below:

“Towns have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody.”

This plan was co-produced to ensure it is informed by local knowledge and expertise of the local people for local people. Significant engagement with local businesses, statutory partners, local businesses, the CVS sector, residents and other under-represented section 75 groups took place.

Over 396 responses were received during continuous engagement practices over the 12-month period of its development. To read more about the engagement and how this informed the content of the plan you can download a copy of the Engagement Report below:
