Tempo Road in line for major new housing development

THE Tempo Road in Enniskillen could be in line for a transformation as a major housing development is in the pipeline. 
The proposed Cherry Dale residential development, just past the Cherrymount Link roundabout and near the Independent Methodist Church, will consist of around 65 houses – made up of semi-detached and detached houses. The proposed private housing development has been planned by Ross Planning, and at present the idea is to create a new access off the Tempo Road and build the modern houses around a central green area.
Les Ross, the planning consultant dealing with the proposed application said,  “It is proposed to develop the site for new private housing. We think that semi-detached and detached houses are most appropriate on this site. We are still in the process of preparing draft layout ideas for the site, which we will present at the consultation event. We think the site can comfortably accommodate 65 houses or thereabouts.”
The development is currently at the planning stage and Ross Planning have organised a public consultation event on Wednesday December 5th, at the Enniskillen Business Centre on the Lackaghboy Road, Enniskillen from 5pm to 7pm. Speaking about the consultation, Mr Ross said, “The idea of the event to show the draft plans and get feedback about the design. After the event we will finalise the plans and submit a planning application. We have undertaken the same process on other sites and we usually find the comments received from the public and from neighbours are really helpful. We are keen to understand what people expect and to understand if anyone has a particular issue of concern or a design idea.”
The developers believe that if the consultation goes to plan, work on the site will begin in 2019.
“We are still at the design stage, but we hope to finalise the plans shortly and submit a planning application early next year. We have already received some feedback from neighbours and it seems there is a desire to get development on site as soon as possible. 
 “If everything goes to plan the building work could begin in late 2019.”
The public are invited to attend the consultation event or submit their views about the plans, and can do so by telephone on 028 867 64800 or emailing
