Fermanagh Area Plan 2007
Proposals: Irvinestown Traffic & Car Parking
The A32 Omagh-Enniskillen Protected Route, an important strategic regional route passes through Irvinestown. Whilst the Pound Street-Mill Street link road is available to carry through traffic clear of the main shopping area of the town some traffic still uses the traditional Main Street route causing conflict with local traffic and detracting from the amenity of the area.
There is one public car park in the town with a capacity of 64 spaces which at present is underused. This is accessed from the Pound Street-Mill Street link road. There is also a good deal of on-street car parking available in the town centre. However, congestion occurs at certain times.
The Department will monitor the situation with regard to traffic, parking and accessibility during the Plan period and will initiate measures as appropriate to reduce congestion and improve accessibility The Department will also expect adequate on site car parking to be provided as part of any significant development or redevelopment proposals in the town centre.
