Man Env 6 Areas of Archaeological Potential
|The Department defines Areas of Archaeological Potential in Enniskillen, Lisnaskea and Newtownbutler.
Areas of Archaeological Potential comprise those areas within historic settlements which may require mitigating measures (which may include excavation) in the context of redevelopment. It is considered that development of sites within the historic cores of Enniskillen, Lisnaskea and Newtownbutler may offer the opportunity to study the remains of historic settlement there. The co-operation of developers in arranging investigation, within the constraints of their proposed redevelopment programme, will be sought so that the archaeological heritage of these areas can be examined and recorded or preserved as appropriate in the public interest. The Planning Service will have regard to the archaeological implications in its consideration of any development proposals in these areas.
