Fermanagh Area Plan 2007
Proposals: Enniskillen Housing Zonings H13-H16
H13 Drumcoo - a 1 4.8ha site to the west of the Irvinestown Road which comprises a localised drumlin containing an existing farm group. The site adjoins Ring Lough to the north and Wolf Lough to the west both of which lie within the Enniskillen Green Belt. These, together with their immediate surroundings including a localised knoll, are safeguarded from development by the designation of a Local Landscape Policy Area as are several mature beech trees within the site and an area of regenerating woodland to the north east. Despite damage to the latter area by electricity pylons which traverse the site the remaining trees should be retained and protected in any development together with hedgerows worthy of retention. Additional landscaping should be provided as appropriate, particularly to the Irvinestown Road frontage and to break up the mass of future housing. A range of densities would be acceptable but development should respect existing slopes and contours and will be confined to single storey properties on rising ground. A single access to an appropriate standard will be permitted onto the Irvinestown Road and must incorporate the provision of a ghost island junction. The provision of a local distributor road will be required as an integral part of the development. A sewer extension and pumping will be required to provide adequate sewerage facilities. It should be noted that a separate access to the small rectangular north eastern portion of this site approximately 0.6ha will be permitted onto the Irvinestown Road, such an access to be constructed in accordance with the Department's technical standards.
H14 Lawnakilla - a 4.5ha site to the north east of Lawnakilla Park which slopes down from the north west to the south east. There are mature hedgerows containing some mature trees within the site which should be retained and protected in any development together with additional landscaping as appropriate. The crest line hedgerow and trees to the north-western boundary are safeguarded from development by the designation of a Local Landscape Policy Area. Development in this area will be confined to single storey with the ridge line of any properties to be constructed on upper slopes kept below the crest line. Access will be permitted onto Lawnakilla Park. Electricity pylons traverse this site. Development of this site has commenced.
H15 Drumclay 1 - a 4.3ha site, the development of which is now substantially complete by the Northern Ireland Housing Executive.
H16 Drumclay 2 - a 0.6ha triangular site which lies between Drumclay Park North and the Drumbawn Northern Ireland Housing Executive development. This site is reasonably level and is bounded to the east by the old Enniskillen to Omagh railway line. Part of this is required for the proposed continuation of the Cherrymount Link Road while the remainder is safeguarded from development by the designation of a Local Landscape Policy Area. Additional landscaping should be provided as appropriate. Access will be permitted onto the Drumbawn estate road. Due to the flat nature of the land a surface water disposal problem may occur.
