Fermanagh Area Plan 2007
Economy: Zone 9 Magho Cliffs

In this zone, the prominence of the shoreline, the important public views from the Enniskillen to Belleek road, the hard and soft landscape and small scale field patterns suggest a very limited capacity to absorb development. Existing tourism developments are low key and include jetties, fishing stands, forest walks and the Ulster Way. The straight character of the shoreline presents major problems for the integration of any development and with the small extent of shoreline woodland only very small scale facilities such as appropriately sited small jetties for fishermen could be feasible.
Offshore and for much of the zone there are extensive open waters which are very important to fishermen. The waters and islands around Castle Caldwell to the north of this zone are managed for their bird life. Conflicts of interests should be avoided and quiet enjoyment allowed to prevail.
Inland and south of the Enniskillen to Belleek road in the low drumlin area there is scope for small scale development. It should be sited near the base of the cliffs to accord with the existing settlement pattern. Traditional buildings could be renovated for holiday purposes.
