Fermanagh Area Plan 2007
Environment: Man Env 1 Conservation Areas
|The Department will consider the designation of Conservation Areas in Fermanagh to safeguard areas of historic or architectural interest.|
Article 50 of the Planning (NI) Order 1991 provides the Department with the power to designate an area of special architectural or historic interest as a Conservation Area where it is desirable to preserve or enhance its character or appearance. The Department considers that such designation can also provide a stimulus for economic regeneration and grant aid is available for works which contribute to the character of the Conservation Area.
The central areas of Enniskillen and Lisnaskea are currently the only designated Conservation Areas in Fermanagh. The Department will investigate the merits of further designations and appropriate enhancement schemes as resources permit.
