Proposals: Irvinestown L5-L8

L5 Necarne - Three visually significant woodland areas which form the historic northern boundary of the Necarne Castle demesne. Sally’s Wood effectively screens both Necarne Castle, a listed building and the Ulster Lakeland Equestrian Park from the urban form of Irvinestown, while the other two woodland areas, Glen Wood and trees around the old Rectory are of great importance to the setting of the town on approach along the Enniskillen Road from the south. While these woodland areas lie outside and adjoining the Irvinestown development limit, their designation as a Local Landscape Policy Area seeks to ensure that boundary trees are retained and protected in the development of any adjoining land within the limit. This will normally require that any building is constructed outside the falling distance of these trees. Elsewhere development opportunities will be restricted by the application of the Department’s rural policies and by the need to protect the Necarne Castle demesne from inappropriate change.
L6 Parochial House - a coniferous woodland area adjacent to the Parochial House which is an important local landscape feature. Appropriate small scale development may be acceptable in landscape terms provided this would not significantly affect existing tree cover.
L7 Killadeas Road - a small stand of mature trees along a watercourse which should be retained and protected as an important local landscape feature. Development proposals on adjoining land must have full regard to their potential impact on these trees.
L8 Lisnarick Road 1 - a row of mature trees which together with the trees on the opposite side of the Lisnarick Road form an avenue on this main approach road into the town. They should be retained and protected as an important local landscape feature. Development proposals on adjoining land must have full regard to their potential impact on these trees.
