Fermanagh Area Plan 2007
Proposals: Irvinestown Housing Zonings H1-H4

H1 Enniskillen Road - a 4.6ha elevated site overlooking the Enniskillen Road and the town beyond. The site comprises a number of fields which rise gently to the south west towards the Necarne Castle demesne. Mature boundary trees at Sally’s Wood adjoining the site are safeguarded from development by the designation of a Local Landscape Policy Area and other vegetation worthy of retention should be protected and supplemented in any development together with additional landscaping as appropriate, particularly to the southern boundary and the Enniskillen Road frontage. Development should respect existing slopes and contours and a range of densities would be acceptable. Access to the site should be divided between the Enniskillen Road and the existing housing distributor road serving Sally’s Wood. The former will require the provision of a footway along the Enniskillen Road frontage and the latter improved visibility at the existing road junction, both to be provided as integral parts of any development.
H2 Burfits Hill - a 5.1 ha site to the south of existing residential development fronting Burfits Hill and bounded to the south by the old Enniskillen to Bundoran railway line. There are a number of significant hedgerows and mature trees throughout the site which should be retained and protected in any development together with additional landscaping as appropriate. The density of development should be low to maintain the character of the area. A single access will be permitted onto Burfits Hill and a footway will be required along this road as an integral part of the development. Pumping may be required to provide adequate sewerage facilities to the southern part of this site.
H3 Killadeas Road - a 1 .2ha site to the north west of the Killadeas Road, adjoining recent residential development at the edge of the town. The site rises towards a localised drumlin to the west and development will be confined to single storey properties on rising ground. The existing boundary hedgerow to the west should be retained and supplemented in any development together with additional landscaping as appropriate particularly to the undefined north western boundary of the site. A single access will be permitted onto the Killadeas Road and a footway along this road will be required as an integral part of the development. Pumping may be required to provide adequate sewerage facilities for this site.
H4 Lisnarick Road - a 4.6ha site to the north of the Lisnarick Road and generally rising northwards from this. The frontage portion of this site is substantially below road level and will require filling as part of any development. Existing vegetation worthy of retention should be protected and supplemented in any development together with additional landscaping as appropriate particularly to the northern boundary and the Lisnarick Road frontage. 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 Lisnarick Road.
