Our Planning Offices

Our public offices are located at 16 High Street (to the rear of the Public Services Centre – members of the public who wish to speak with Planning Officers in person are asked to report to the reception area of the Public Services Centre where they will be directed to the appropriate meeting area), Omagh Co Tyrone, BT78 1BQ and County Buildings, 15 East Bridge Street, Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh, BT74 7BW, and they are open from 9:00am to 5:00pm, Monday to Friday.

From here you can pick up an application form, submit a completed application, pay fees and check the status of an application.

Do I need planning permission?

The type of work you intend to carry out will determine if you need planning permission, the type of application you need to make and if you need building regulation approval.

How to apply for planning 

Pre-application advice

We offer a pre-application discussion service for you to speak with a Planning Officer and discuss proposals before you make an application.

If you would like to make an appointment, please contact us.

There are three types of planning applications:

  1. Local applications: these are typically smaller, more straightforward application.
  2. Major applications: larger, more complex applications with pre-application requirements.
  3. Regionally significant applications: these applications will be determined by the Department of Environment.

From 1 July 2015, if you want to submit a major application, you need to consult with the community on your proposals before submitting your application.

Forms for local and major applications are available in two ways:

  • You can call into our public offices at 16 High Street, Omagh, Co Tyrone, BT78 1BQ (members of the public who wish to speak with Planning Officers in person are asked to report to the reception area of the Public Services Centre where they will be directed to the appropriate meeting area) and County Buildings, 15 East Bridge Street, Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh, BT74 7BW, and they are open from 9:00am to 5:00pm, Monday to Friday.

Returning your application for planning permission 

Your application must be accompanied by the appropriate fee and supporting documentation to be processed.

You can pay your fee in one of two ways:

  • pay by cheque – just make it payable to Fermanagh & Omagh District Council or cash.

Completed application forms and fees can be submitted:

  • by post (please enclose a cheque made payable to Fermanagh & Omagh District Council )
  • in person at our public offices at 16 High Street, Omagh, Co Tyrone, BT78 1BQ and County Buildings, 15 East Bridge Street, Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh, BT74 7BW, and they are open from 9:00am to 5:00pm, Monday to Friday.

We’re unable to offer an online application or payment service at this time.

How we make planning decisions 

The type, size and complexity of an application will determine how a decision is made. There are three ways in which a decision can be made:

  • A planning officer may have the authority to determine smaller, more straightforward applications.
  • Our Members of Committee will consider all major applications and others it feels may be of significance for the district.
  • The Department of the Environment will make decisions that have regional significance.

Full details are set out in our Scheme of Delegation.
