Fermanagh Area Plan 2007
Proposals: Enniskillen Local Landscape Policy Areas L29-L32

L29 Cherry Island - The western portion of Cherry Island with mature planting. The eastern half of the island is currently laid out as open space. The islands of Lough Erne require protection as Fermanagh’s most renowned feature and Cherry Island, despite its location in the centre of Enniskillen, is no exception. The area presently contains one property and, with the exception of appropriate extensions to this, there will be a strong presumption against development in this area.
L30 Old Omagh Railway Line - That part of the old Enniskillen to Omagh railway line between Forthill Street and the Drumclay Link Road. This is well landscaped, forms a visually significant feature and has potential to act as a local wildlife corridor. It should be retained and protected and development proposals on adjoining land must have full regard to their potential impact on the trees. Part of the railway line has a pedestrian pathway and there is the opportunity to extend this pedestrian linkage.
L31 Old Clones Railway Line - That part of the old Enniskillen to Clones railway line which provides a pedestrian link between Hollyhill car park and the Tempo Road. This is reasonably well landscaped, forms a visually significant feature and has potential to act as a local wildlife corridor. It should be retained and protected and development proposals on adjoining land must have full regard to their potential impact on the trees.
L32 Killynure Lough - The wetland scrub vegetation and reed beds based around the remains of Killynure Lough which contains a crannog, an archaeological monument. Historically this area with its poor ground conditions has not developed and its inclusion as a Local Landscape Policy Area seeks not only to protect this wetland habitat and the crannog but to act as a landscape buffer between existing development at Killynure to the west and south and future large scale housing development to the east. There will be a strong presumption against development in this area.
