Fermanagh Area Plan 2007
Proposals: Lisnaskea Local Landscape Policy Areas L6-L10

L6 Burleigh’s Fort - a rath which is part of the local heritage. This archaeological monument and its immediate surroundings form part of the setting of the town viewed on approach along the Newtown butler Road from the south. The area lies outside and adjoining the Lisnaskea development limit and there will be a strong presumption against development.
L7 Newtownbutler Road - a line of large mature trees which slope down to the Newtownbutler Road. These trees lie within and adjoin land zoned for housing and should be retained and protected in any development of this area. Accordingly it will be a requirement that any building is constructed outside the falling distance of these trees. It is however accepted that access in between these trees will be required to service the housing zoning.
L8 Crom Road - a small plantation of coniferous trees to the west of the Crom Road which is visually significant. There will be a presumption against development in this area and development proposals on adjoining land zoned for housing must have full regard to their potential impact on these trees. Ultimately the retention of this vegetation will help break up the mass of any future housing development.
L9 Castlebalfour Road 1 - a young plantation of oak and alder trees to the rear of residential properties fronting Castlebalfour Road. There will be a presumption against development in this area and development proposals on adjoining land zoned for housing must have full regard to their potential impact on these trees. Ultimately the retention of this vegetation will help break up the mass of any future housing development.
L10 Old Clones Railway Line - Part of the old Enniskillen to Clones railway line. This is densely vegetated with mature hedgerows interspersed with trees, and has potential to act as a local wildlife corridor. It should be retained and protected as a locally significant landscape feature and development proposals on adjoining land must have full regard to their potential impact on this vegetation. There is potential to provide pedestrian linkage along the railway line from the south of Lisnaskea to the Derrylin Road. Part of the old railway line lies within land zoned for housing and it is accepted that access may be required through this area.
