Fermanagh Area Plan 2007
Proposals: Enniskillen Housing Zonings H29-H32

H29 Agharainy - a 13.0ha site to the south of and mainly set back from the Tempo Road. The site is reasonably level to the Tempo Road frontage but then rises reasonably steeply southwards towards the crests of two localised drumlins which are safeguarded from development by the designation of a Local Landscape Policy Area. Whilst the southern boundary of the site is undefined at this point on the ground it lies below the crest-line of the two aforementioned localised drumlins. There is an area of regenerating woodland abutting the Tempo Road which includes a visually significant line of mature beech trees and the mature hedged boundaries of the old Enniskillen to Clones railway line, the majority of which is also safeguarded from development by the designation of a Local Landscape Policy Area. Part of this woodland area however, lies within the site to allow for access from the Tempo Road to the adjoining backland. A Local Landscape Policy Area also protects a mature tree line along the western boundary of the site. The remaining mature hedgerows within the site and individual trees should also be retained and protected in any development, together with the provision of additional landscaping as appropriate. In particular, it is essential that, as an integral part of the development, a significant planted buffer with a minimum width of 20 metres be provided to the undefined southern boundary and below the crest line. This will ensure that the presently undisturbed setting of the National Trust property, Castle Coole, and its historic demesne is retained and enhanced. In addition development should respect existing slopes and contours and will be confined to single storey on upper slopes with the ridge line of any properties to be constructed kept below the crest line. Any open space provision on this site should allow for pedestrian access to the adjoining regenerating woodland. Access to an appropriate standard will be permitted onto the Tempo Road and a footway will be required along this road as an integral part of the development. Adequate sewerage provision may require major investment and pumping of the site may be necessary. Development of a discrete part of this site to the south of the old Enniskillen to Clones railway line has commenced.
H30 Tempo Road 4 - a 7.8ha site which comprises a bare localised drumlin to the south east of the Tempo Road. The tree lined laneway which forms the eastern boundary of the site is safeguarded from development by the designation of a Local Landscape Policy Area while the hedgerow to the southern boundary should be retained and protected in any development. Additional landscaping should be provided as appropriate, particularly to supplement existing boundaries and to the highest part of the site to break up the mass of future housing. Pedestrian linkage should be provided to the adjoining site zoned for recreation/open space. Development should respect existing slopes and contours and will be confined to single-storey properties on rising ground. A single access will be permitted onto the Tempo Road and must incorporate the provision of a ghost island junction. A footway will also be required along the Tempo Road as an integral part of the development. The site may require pumping and gravity sewers to provide adequate sewerage facilities.
H31 Killyvilly - a 5.6ha bowl-shaped site to the south east of the Tempo Road. The tree-lined laneway to an existing farm group together with other mature vegetation within the site should be retained and supplemented in any development and additional landscaping provided as appropriate, particularly to the Tempo Road frontage and on rising ground. Development should respect existing slopes and contours and will be confined to single storey properties on rising ground. Any layout must be designed having full regard to the amenities enjoyed by the occupants of the adjoining Killyvilly Villas development. A single access to an appropriate standard will be permitted onto the Tempo Road and a footway will be required along this road as an integral part of the development. A sewer extension and pumping will be required to provide adequate sewerage facilities.
H32 Shankill - a 2.9ha site to the north of the Tempo Road adjoining ongoing housing development at Killyvilly Heights. To the west the site is reasonably level and then slopes upwards to the north east. This comprises the most elevated area of land within the Enniskillen limit of development. The Planning Service would accept the use of the field between the south eastern boundary of the site and The Tempo Road as open space to serve the proposed housing area. The mature vegetation along a watercourse to the south eastern boundary should be retained and protected in any development together with additional landscaping to the other site boundaries. In particular it is essential that a significant planted buffer be provided as an integral part of the development to the north eastern and eastern boundaries. Development of this site will be confined to single storey properties. Access will only be permitted onto Killyvilly Heights and will require improvements to its junction with the Tempo Road as an integral part of the development. The site may require pumping and gravity sewers to provide adequate sewerage facilities.
