Fermanagh Area Plan 2007
Proposals: Lisnaskea Housing Zonings H9-H13

H9 Castlebalfour Road 1 - a 3.7ha site to the east of the Castlebalfour Road and overlooking the Newtownbutler Road. The site slopes up from east to west to a hedgerow boundary which is safeguarded from development by the designation of a Local Landscape Policy Area. Other vegetation worthy of retention including hedgerow trees should be protected and supplemented in any development together with additional landscaping as appropriate. Development should respect existing slopes and contours and will be confined to single storey properties on upper slopes. The density of development should be low to maintain the character of the area. The access to the site should be located on the Castlebalfour Road as close as possible to its junction with the A 34. The north western portion of the site located between the two existing residential properties on Castlebalfour Road could be developed separately for a single property accessed off the Castlebalfour Road.
H10 Castlebalfour Road 2 - a 2.9ha site which comprises an area of land between the built up frontages of the Castlebalfour Road and Crom Road and overlooking the Newtownbutler Road. Existing hedgerows should be retained, protected and supplemented in any development together with the provision of additional landscaping as appropriate. Development should respect existing slopes and contours and the density should be low to maintain the character of the area. Access will be permitted to either the Castlebalfour Road at the north west of the site or onto the Crom Road at the north eastern extremity of the site. The sub-soil conditions of the northern part of the site may require that foundations are piled.
H11 Castlebalfour Road 3 - a 4.5ha site which comprises the upper slopes of a localised drumlin located between the rear of properties fronting the Castlebalfour Road and the Crom Road. A plantation of coniferous trees fronting the Crom Road and a young plantation of oak and alder trees to the west are safeguarded from development by the designation of Local Landscape Policy Areas. There are a number of good hedgerows within this site which should be retained, protected and supplemented in any development together with additional landscaping as appropriate. Development should respect existing slopes and contours and will be confined to single storey properties. The density of development should be low to maintain the character of the area. Access will be permitted onto the Castlebalfour Road at the north western extremity of the site between two existing properties. This will require substantial earthworks to provide a suitable gradient.
H12 Killynamph Road - a 4.8ha site to the south of Killynamph Road. The site comprises one large open field which slopes down gently from a farm laneway in the east towards the line of the old Enniskillen to Clones railway line which is safeguarded from development by the designation of a Local Landscape Policy Area. There is little existing vegetation and additional landscaping should be provided as appropriate both to the site boundaries and within the site to break up the mass of future housing. Development should respect existing slopes and contours and will be confined to single storey properties on rising ground. Access will be permitted onto the Killynamph Road which will require improvement as an integral part of the development. Pumping will be required to provide adequate sewerage facilities for the site. The sub-soil conditions of the western part of the site adjoining the old railway line may require that foundations are piled.
H13 Newtownbutler Road - a O.9ha site to the south of Newtown butler Road. The site slopes up southwards and contains a line of mature trees safeguarded from development by the designation of a Local Landscape Policy Area. It is accepted that access in between these trees will be required to adequately service this site, but this should involve minimum disturbance. Additional landscaping should be provided as appropriate particularly to the undefined southern boundary of the site. A single access to an appropriate standard will be permitted onto the Newtownbutler Road at the western extremity of the site and a footway will be required along this road as an integral part of the development.
