Fermanagh Area Plan 2007
Proposals: Lisnaskea Local Landscape Policy Areas L1-L5
L1 Sheebeg - The earthworks at Sheebeg are a significant archaeological site which together with their immediate surroundings are important as part of the local heritage and landscape and in their relationship to the setting of the town. The area lies outside and adjoining the Lisnaskea development limit and there will be a strong presumption against development.
L2 Clifton Lodge - The visually important parkland setting of Clifton Lodge and its outbuildings which are both listed buildings. The main gateway entrance to the property is also listed. There are a large number of mature trees in and along the boundaries to the property which is currently vacant. This includes dense vegetation along the minor laneway access to the outbuildings. There will be a strong presumption against development which would be detrimental to the trees or to the listed building and its parkland setting. Sympathetic proposals for re-use of the property and its outbuildings will however be encouraged provided these maintain the overall character of the area. This property and its grounds would provide an ideal site for a country house hotel or for the creation of a town park.
L3 Highlands- a mixed woodland area which is a visually important landscape feature. Appropriate small scale development may be acceptable in landscape terms provided this would not significantly affect existing tree cover and development proposals on adjoining land must have full regard to their potential impact on these trees.
L4 Killygullan - a hedgerow with mature ash trees which is a locally important landscape feature. These trees should be retained and protected in the development of adjoining land zoned for housing. This will normally require that any building is constructed outside the falling distance of these trees. It is however accepted that access through this hedgerow will be required to service the housing zoning.
L5 Cushwash - Two raths and their immediate surroundings at Cushwash. These archaeological monuments are part of the local heritage and of the setting of the town when viewed from the Newtownbutler Road and localised slopes to the south west. The area lies outside and adjoining the Lisnaskea development limit and there will be a strong presumption against development.
