Fermanagh Area Plan 2007
Proposals: Enniskillen TC12 Short Stay Car Parking
|TC 12 Short Stay Car Parking|
|The Department will monitor the need for additional short stay car parks in the town centre and assess the feasibility of a multi-storey car park at Eden Street.|
The Department will examine any new opportunities for short stay car parking in the town centre should they become available. It is not presently proposed to provide any new additional short stay car parks. It is intended that existing short stay car parks will be retained.
To be economically viable it is likely that a multi-storey car park would have to be constructed in association with a substantial anchor tenant which would in turn generate the need for more car parking provision. In addition to meeting this demand the Department would need to be satisfied that the displacement of existing ground parking spaces would be replaced and substantially increased on upper storeys.
The Eden Street car park would appear to lend itself topographically to such a development while its close proximity and convenience to the town centre would help to safeguard and boost the attraction of the main shopping streets. The height and visual impact of such a development would be key considerations when determining any future proposals, particularly as the site occupies a prominent position within the Enniskillen Conservation Area.
The Department intends to prepare a Design Brief to test private sector reaction to this proposal.
