Fermanagh and Omagh District Council are committed to positively contributing towards the achievement of sustainable development and as such have a Sustainable Development Policy in place which is also accompanied by an annual Sustainable Development Action Plan.
Sustainable development is about meeting the needs of people today and providing them with a good quality of life without compromising the quality of life of future generations.
It is characterised typically as achieving an optimum balance between social, environmental and economic considerations. In achieving this balance, sustainable development aims to maximise the benefits of social, environmental and economic initiatives by mitigating negative and increasing positive impacts.
By working in accordance with our Sustainable Development Policy, Fermanagh and Omagh District Council will:
- Consider sustainability in all its actions and decisions
- Progressively integrate sustainability principles into its daily activities
- Seek to increase the awareness of sustainable development generally
- Ensure that where possible, council activities support the achievement of sustainable development
- Strive to act as an exemplar for sustainable development, ensuring policies and actions provide a lead to the local and wider community
