The Termon Complex “A new multi-faceted community and recreation regeneration project designed to enhance the twin villages of Pettigo in County Donegal and Tullyhommon in County Fermanagh” Funding Programme: Funding Manager: Project Partners:

EU Programme for Peace and Reconciliation in Northern Ireland and the Border Region of Ireland (Peace III) Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB) Donegal County Council, Fermanagh District Council & ADoPT (Association for the Development of Pettigo & Tullyhommon)

Background to the project: In June 2008, Donegal County Council in partnership with Fermanagh District Council & ADoPT (Association for the Development of Pettigo & Tullyhommon) submitted a funding application to the Special EU Programmes Body under Measure 2.1 – Creating Shared Public Spaces. Following a successful application, Donegal County Council as lead partner, received a Letter of Offer in December 2009 to the value of €8.3m. The €8.3m is for the capital works, i.e. all costs associated with the design and build of the new facilities. The funding cannot be used for ongoing running costs. As lead partner, Donegal County Council draw down all the funding from SEUPB on a monthly basis. ADoPT have no dealings with this aspect of the project; ADoPT do not and have not had any say in the allocation of the funding. The cost of the project was based on construction rates and agreed by the Design team employed to come up with the concept. Work commenced on site in late October 2012 and is near completion. The Youth Hall renovations are completed & handover took place on 1st November 2013. The Termon Centre & Little Smarties will be completed in February & handover 20th February 2014. Recap of the main strands of the project are: Termon Centre - a multi-use centre for drama, sport, conferences and local/regional events. The Centre will become the central focus of the area, providing information on its history, the local facilities on offer and events taking place. A new playschool/afterschool with secure outdoor play area An outdoor multi-use games area (MUGA) Public playground


Community Garden Area Extensive refurbishment of the existing Methodist Hall in Tullyhommon which will be transformed into a local Youth Hub. Both centres will act as social hubs providing neutral shared spaces where communities throughout the local area can interact and enjoy all of the newly developed recreational opportunities on offer. The project will also include the revitalisation of the Termon riverbank with the development of a riverside park stretching from a new village gateway at Tullyhommon to a riverfront picnic area on the Pettigo side at the site of the proposed new Termon centre. A newly constructed footbridge is proposed to span over the water and join both communities. Offering improvements to the urban environment of the village centres to include footpath renewal, under grounding of services, decorative street lighting, street furniture and the implementation of a heritage town painting scheme. The project will also serve to consolidate some of the work already carried out by ADoPT through its ‘Community in Action Plan’ which promotes the peace building process through the delivery of a wide range of activities and actions targeted at building the capacity of various groups such as young people, senior citizens, marginalized and minority groups. ADoPT’s ‘Community In Action Plan’ is an integral part of the project as it will ensure the active participation and usage of the new facilities by the whole community. ADoPT (on behalf of the community) will be the landlord of the Termon Complex however the Termon Management Committee & manager will be responsible for the day to day running of the Termon Centre.
