Fermanagh Area Plan 2007
Proposals: Enniskillen TC8 Environmental Improvement
TC 8 Environmental Improvement
|The Department will encourage the environmental upgrading of private back-land property, public open spaces and car parks in Enniskillen Town Centre.
While much has already been done to conserve and enhance the character and appearance of Enniskillen’s main street there is scope for further improvement in other parts of the town centre. The opportunity exists to re-develop the rear frontage of many existing businesses so as to encourage through pedestrian movement, facilitate rear servicing and create a more attractive environment Alternatively it may be possible to develop self contained uses separate from the main frontage in backland areas, although the safeguarding of existing or potential rear servicing of main street properties will be a key consideration. Where neither of these courses of action is feasible or contemplated, much can be done by general maintenance and repair of back returns, outbuildings and perimeter walls. Tree planting should be an integral component of environmental improvement and landscaping can also do much to improve unattractive backlands and exposed open spaces, including car parks.
