Key Plans and Strategies

Community Plan ‘Fermanagh and Omagh 2030’
The Community Plan for the district, ‘Fermanagh and Omagh 2030’, is the overarching, long-term strategy for the area, based on a thorough analysis of the district’s needs and priorities. The Community Plan sets out three themes and eight long-term outcomes which aim to improve quality of life for local people through improved social, economic and environmental wellbeing, and to contribute to sustainable development. It will be delivered through a partnership structure involving organisations from across the public, private and community/voluntary sectors with the Council acting as lead partner.

Corporate Plan Update 2017-19
Fermanagh and Omagh District Council has updated its Corporate Plan to cover the period 2017-19. The update takes account of the introduction of a Community Plan for the area and aligns the Council’s corporate priorities to the long term strategic direction set out in the Community Plan. The purpose of the Corporate Plan is to demonstrate, for the period 2017-19:
(i) the contribution which the Council will make towards delivery of the Community Plan for the district;
(ii) how the Council will fulfil its statutory and other responsibilities.


Annual Improvement Objectives
Each year the Council will identify, consult upon and publish Improvement Objectives which will set out what we will do in the year ahead to deliver on our statutory duty to secure continuous improvement. We will also publish an Annual Report by the end of September in the following financial year, outlining the progress made towards achieving those objectives.
In the 2018-19 year, we have included our Improvement Objectives within the Improvement Plan 2018/19. The published Improvement Plan can be found on the related files section of this page, alongside a one page summary of the Improvement Objectives.
