Fermanagh Area Plan 2007
Environment: Man Env 7 Historic Parks and Gardens
The Department will protect the following historic parks, gardens and demesnes in Fermanagh:
Country houses, some of which are listed buildings, set in landscaped parkland or within demesnes, are an important part of the landscape character of Fermanagh. The Department has identified a number of these parks, gardens and demesnes which it considers represent a significant historic and landscape resource. Additional details and defined areas of these are contained in the Countryside Assessment Supplement.
The Department will assess the impact of new development proposals on the overall landscape of these historic parks, gardens and demesnes. Any development which is likely to have an adverse impact on the planned layout, including views in and out or quality or character of these areas will normally be refused planning permission.
Other parks, gardens and demesnes in Fermanagh which retain only some elements of their original form are also listed in the Countryside Assessment Supplement. In the event of development being approved within these, the co-operation of developers in arranging evaluation and recording of particular features or landscaped areas may be sought, so that knowledge of this part of our landscape heritage is not lost.
