Fermanagh Area Plan 2007
Proposals: Lisnaskea Local Landscape Policy Areas L21-L25

L21 Gortacharn 2 - a strong hedgerow with mature trees along a ridge line and trees along the laneway around a farmhouse. These trees are visually prominent viewed from the Brookeborough Road and should be retained and protected as an important local landscape feature in any development of adjoining land, part of which is zoned for housing. This will normally require that any building is constructed outside the falling distance of these trees.
L22 Brookeborough Road - An avenue of mature laneway trees which are visually significant and enhance the setting of the town viewed on approach along the Brookeborough Road from the north. They should be retained and protected as an important landscape feature. Development proposals on adjoining land must have full regard to their potential impact on these trees.
L23 The Old Rectory - The visually important setting of the Old Rectory, a listed building including mature trees. There will be a presumption against development which would be detrimental to the listed building, its setting or existing tree cover.
L24 Derryree House - The mature trees and recent planting around Derryree House which together with mature vegetation along the old Enniskillen to Clones railway line are visually significant viewed on approach along the Maguiresbridge Road from the south-east. While there may be scope for appropriate small scale development adjoining the existing house or which does not affect existing tree cover, there will generally be a presumption against development in this area and existing trees should be retained, protected and supplemented in any development of adjoining land zoned for housing. This will normally require that any building is constructed outside the falling distance of these trees.
L25 Drumbrughas North - The planted grounds of a property located at the edge of Lisnaskea which enhance the setting of the town viewed on approach along the Maguiresbridge Road from the north. Appropriate small scale development may be acceptable in landscape terms provided this would not significantly affect existing tree cover.
