Fermanagh Area Plan 2007
Proposals: Lisnaskea Housing Zonings H5-H8

H5 Barnhill - a 5.1ha site to the west of the Derrylin Road and which comprises the southern portion of a localised drumlin. The frontage portion of this site is substantially below road level and will require filling as part of any development. The dense vegetation associated with the old Enniskillen to Clones railway line along the western boundary of the site is safeguarded from development by the designation of a Local Landscape Policy Area. Other vegetation worthy of retention should be protected and supplemented in any development together with additional landscaping as appropriate. Development should respect existing slopes and contours. Access will be permitted onto the Derrylin Road and must be staggered from the access serving the Trasna Way residential development opposite. A footway along the Derrylin Road will also be required as an integral part of the development.
H6 Derrylin Road 1 - a 5.6ha site to the west of the Derrylin Road. The site falls away steeply to the west from the road towards the line of the old Enniskillen to Clones railway line which is no longer visible. This area will require filling as part of any development. This adjoins a larger area to the west comprising a localised knoll overlooking Lough Head. Development here should respect existing slopes and contours and will be confined to single storey properties on upper slopes. There are mature hedgerows within the site which should be retained, protected and supplemented in any development together with additional landscaping as appropriate, particularly to the Derrylin Road frontage. An area of trees along the southern boundary is safeguarded from development by the designation of a Local Landscape Policy Area. This site should be developed comprehensively and a single access to service the entire area will be permitted onto the Derrylin Road.
H7 Killygullan - a 1 .3ha site to the south east of and adjoining the existing Killygullan residential estate development. The site is reasonably level and bounded to the north west by a hedgerow containing a large number of mature trees which is safeguarded from development by the designation of a Local Landscape Policy Area. Additional landscaping should be provided as appropriate, particularly to screen an existing farm group to the south west. Access will be permitted via the existing Killygullan residential development, but no access will be permitted onto the Ballagh Road.
H8 Derrylin Road 2 - a 7.6ha site to the east of the Derrylin Road and adjoining existing medium density housing development. The site comprises a number of fields sloping down reasonably steeply from the rear of properties fronting the Castlebalfour Road towards the Derrylin Road. Two visually significant hedgerows containing a large proportion of mature trees and the dense vegetation associated with the old Enniskillen to Clones railway line within the site are safeguarded from development by the designation of Local Landscape Policy Areas. It is accepted however that access through these landscape features will be required to adequately service this site. Other vegetation worthy of retention should be protected and supplemented in any development together with additional landscaping as appropriate. A Local Landscape Policy Area also protects an adjoining rath at Lisdoo to the north eastern boundary of the site and appropriate protection should be given to this archaeological monument during the period of site works. Development should respect existing slopes and contours and will be confined to single storey properties on rising ground. A range of densities would be acceptable. Access to this site will be permitted onto the Derrylin Road or via the existing Kilmacrannel development. The former will require the provision of a footway along the Derrylin Road frontage as an integral part of the development. In view of the size of this site it may develop in several discrete parts. Pumping will be required to provide adequate sewerage facilities for the site. The subsoil conditions of the southern part of the site may require that foundations are piled.
