Fermanagh Area PLan 2007
Proposals: Irvinestown L1-L4
L1 Enniskillen Road 1 - An area of mature and regenerating trees which is visually prominent on approach to the town along the Enniskillen Road from the south. Appropriate small scale development may be acceptable in landscape terms provided this would not significantly affect existing tree cover.
L2 Enniskillen Road 2 - An area of mature and regenerating trees on land sloping down to a stream to the south. Whilst originally part of the Necarne Castle demesne, development has encroached into this area in recent years. Appropriate small scale development may be acceptable in landscape terms provided this would not significantly affect existing tree cover.
L3 Old Bundoran Railway Line - a row of Lawson Cypress trees along the edge of the old Enniskillen to Bundoran railway line and an adjoining row of mature poplar trees along the Mill Street - Enniskillen Road frontage. These trees are visually significant and the old railway line has potential to act as a local wildlife corridor. This area should be retained and protected as an important local landscape feature and development proposals on adjoining land must have full regard to their potential impact on the trees.
L4 Church Tower and graveyard - The 18th Century Church Tower, a listed building and adjoining historic graveyard mark the site of a 1 7th century church and are an important part of the local heritage. There are 2 large mature trees within the graveyard. There will be a strong presumption against development in this area and the Department in considering proposals for development or redevelopment of adjoining sites will have regard to their potential impact on the Church Tower, graveyard and associated trees.
