T5 Re-Use of Existing Buildings for Tourism Purposes
|The Department will normally give favourable consideration to the provision of tourism facilities or accommodation by the sympathetic conversion or appropriate extension of existing buildings and the renovation of vacant buildings.
Fermanagh has a large number of vacant buildings including dwellings in the countryside which could be suitable for renovation and re-use particularly as self catering accommodation. Re-use of older buildings has many advantages; it may help to provide a more attractive tourism product, make good use of an important resource and help to maintain the character of the rural area.
