Communities & businesses urged to engage in draft Flood Risk Management Plans consultation

Draft Flood Risk Management Plans for the North Western River Basin Districts are currently available for public consultation.


This consultation will run for ten weeks until 28 October, 2016.


In 2011, the Government identified 300 areas that are at potentially significant risk from flooding from all flooding sources.  Extensive and detailed engineering modelling has been completed for each of these 300 areas, known as Areas for Further Assessment (AFAs). Ninety of these AFAs are coastal areas.


The OPW and its partners has engaged in extensive informal public consultation on the flood maps and the statutory public consultation on the maps concluded in December 2015.  The majority of the maps have now been finalised, although some are still undergoing amendment arising from new relevant information being made available.  The final maps are also available to view on the consultation website


This consultation on the draft Plans is the final stage of public consultation under the CFRAM Programme.  


Local communities, businesses and environmental groups are being urged to engage in this consultation process.


All details of the public consultation are available on the dedicated consultation website and copies of the draft Plans and related Environmental Assessments are also available for viewing at Donegal County Council offices, County House, Lifford, Co. Donegal.


The deadline for the public consultation process is 28 October 2016.
