South West College to carry out Feasibility Study

We are delighted to announce that South West College (SWC) are the successful tenderers for the feasibility study. They have been asked to produce a report which is creative and has a vision for the future growth of the village and surrounding area which maximises its natural environment. We want them to explore the opportunities that will bring tangible benefits to our community such as tourism, inward investment and funding opportunities.

At our next partnership meeting, which will be held on Wednesday 10th December in Derrygonnelly Orange Hall at 8pm (please note change of usual date) we will be receiving a presentation from Dr Jenny Sproule who will be leading this work. Jenny will set out how she plans to consult with the community so that we have ownership of the project. Jenny will also be holding a number of focus groups in the New Year and your input and involvement will be critical to the success of this study.

It is expected that the report will be completed by the end of February 2015 and this will then help the partnership to develop our plans for the future.

This is a really exciting time for our community and we look forward to seeing as many people at our next meeting and taking part in the focus groups.
