Fermanagh Area Plan 2007
Proposals: Enniskillen Housing Zonings H17-H20

H17 Knockalough - a 9.9ha site which comprises a localised drumlin to the north east of the Lower Chanterhill Road. The site contains mature hedgerows and groups of mature trees which should be retained and protected in any development together with additional landscaping as appropriate, particularly on the highest part of the site and to break up the mass of future housing. Any open space provision on this site may entail use of the lower Iying land around the zoned housing area, but only as an integral part of the overall development. A range of densities would be acceptable, but only single storey properties will be permitted on upper slopes and all development should respect existing slopes and contours. The provision of a local distributor road will be required as an integral part of the development. A single access to an appropriate standard will be permitted onto the proposed extension of the Cherrymount Link Road and should be staggered from that serving the Drumbawn estate. This must incorporate the provision of a ghost island junction. The local distributor road should continue eastwards to provide a link onto the Aughaward Road and should be designed to incorporate potential access to white land adjoining Knockalough to the north. Electricity pylons traverse this site.
H18 Drumgarrow 1 - an 8.6ha site to the north west of the Coa Road and north east of the housing zoning at Knockalough. The site forms the western portion of a large drumlin which slopes steeply down from the east to the west and south. The site contains mature hedgerows and mature groups of trees which should be retained and protected in any development together with additional landscaping as appropriate, particularly on upper slopes. Any open space provision on this site may entail use of the lower Iying land around the zoned housing area, but only as an integral part of the development. A range of densities would be acceptable, but only single storey properties will be permitted on upper slopes and all development should respect existing slopes and contours. Access to a portion of this site will be permitted onto Underwood Park. However, access to the majority of the zoned area will be dependent upon an extension of the local distributor road required to service the adjoining Knockalough housing zoning and this should be an integral part of the development; this should continue eastwards to provide a link with the Aughaward Road and should be designed to incorporate potential access to white land adjoining to the north. Electricity pylons traverse this site.
H19 Drumgarrow 2 - a 6.0ha site to the north west of the Coa Road which comprises a number of fields sloping down northeastwards from a drumlin crest. The fields are bounded by hedgerows with some mature trees which should be retained and protected in any development together with additional landscaping as appropriate, particularly to the south western boundary. Development should respect existing slopes and contours and will be confined to single storey properties on rising ground. Pedestrian linkage should provided to the adjoining site zoned for Recreation/Open Space. Access to this site will require the upgrading of the Aughaward Road and the provision of a local distributor road as an integral part of the development. This should link through adjoining zonings to the proposed extension of the Cherrymount Link Road and its design should incorporate potential access to white land adjoining to the north-west. A single access will be permitted onto the Coa Road to service a portion of this site.
H20 Cavanaleck - a 6.0ha site to the south of the Coa Road and adjoining the Beech Hill Northern Ireland Housing Executive development to the west. The land slopes west to east across the site from a strong hedgerow boundary with some hedgerow trees; this should be retained and protected in any development and additional landscaping provided as appropriate, particularly to the undefined eastern boundary of the site. Development should respect existing slopes and contours. Access will be permitted onto Sycamore Drive, but no access will be permitted onto the Coa Road. The northern portion of this site may require pumping to provide adequate sewerage facilities.
