Fermanagh Area Plan 2007
Proposals: Irvinestown Housing Zonings H5-H8
H5 Townhill - a 5.6ha site to the south west of the Kesh Road. The site rises steeply towards existing residential development at Hudson Heights to the south east. Existing vegetation worthy of retention should be protected and supplemented in any development together with additional landscaping as appropriate. Development should respect existing slopes and contours. Access to this site will be permitted onto the Kesh Road or via Hudson Heights and in view of its size this site may develop in several discrete parts.
H6 Kesh Road - a 2.Oha site fronting the Kesh Road at the north western edge of the town. The site is generally level and is bounded to the north west and north east by hedgerows containing a large proportion of mature trees which are safeguarded from development by the designation of a Local Landscape Policy Area. Additional landscaping should be provided as appropriate particularly to the Kesh Road frontage. A single access to an appropriate standard will be permitted onto the Kesh Road and a footway will be required along this road as an integral part of the development. A small part of the site may also be accessed from the minor road to the east of the site which may require upgrading. A sewer extension will be required to provide adequate sewerage facilities.
H8 Lack Road 1 - a 2.1 ha site to the west of the Lack Road which slopes down generally from south to north towards a watercourse. Existing vegetation worthy of retention should be protected and supplemented together with additional landscaping as appropriate. An adjoining rath is safeguarded from development by the designation of a Local Landscape Policy Area and appropriate protection should be given to this archaeological monument during the period of site works. A single access at the northern extremity of this site will be permitted onto the Lack Road and this will require filling. Development of this site should not prejudice potential future development on white land adjoining at Forthill.
