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
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:
- Local applications: these are typically smaller, more straightforward application.
- Major applications: larger, more complex applications with pre-application requirements.
- 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:
- Download an application form. You can either print off the form and complete it by hand, or type your application and then print it off.
- 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 Fermanagh Visitor Information Centre, 7 Shore Road, Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh BT74 7EF, 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 the following ways:
- By Cash – at either of the two planning offices
- By Cheque – cheques should be made payable to Fermanagh and Omagh District Council
- By Debit or Credit card – in person at our planning offices or over the phone
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 7 Shore Road, Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh BT74 7EF.
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.
Request to speak to committee
If you’d like to speak to our planning committee about a planning application, please email your request to email@example.com or telephone 0300 303 1777, Extension 20207 or 20203 . You need to have the application reference number and you must submit the request before 5:00pm on the Monday before the committee meeting. You can only speak to committee if you’ve submitted a written response to an application.
Once we receive your application we will be in touch with more information.
