Welcome to Community Planning in Fermanagh and Omagh.  Below, you will find lots of information about what Community Planning is and our progress since its introduction in 2015.  In 2020, we reviewed the Community Plan, taking into account a number of major changes in our district.

Community Plan Review document is available to view, as well as the quick-reference guide and the 6 Population Report Cards.

What is 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.  A quick guide 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.
