2nd Cycle - Flood Risk Management Plan 2021-2027

A Flood Risk Management Plan (FRMP) is a requirement of the European Union Floods Directive.

The Flood Risk Management Plan will highlight the flood hazards and risks in the most Significant Flood Risk Areas in NI from flooding from rivers, the sea, surface water and reservoirs. The plan identifies the Objectives and Measures that will be undertaken to address flooding and sets out how the relevant authorities will work together with communities to reduce the flood risks.

A draft Timetable and Work Programme for the preparation of the Northern Ireland Flood Risk Management Plan 2021-2027, has been produced. The purpose of this document is to outline the proposed works programme for preparation of the second cycle Flood Risk Management Plan (FRMP), detail the key deliverables and their deadlines, and to provide a statement on the consultation measures to be taken with stakeholders and members of the public.

The draft Timetable and Work Programme can be viewed at:

There are a number of distinct steps to be taken in the production of a FRMP, and the flowchart below illustrates the logical sequence of activities in the development cycle for FRMPs.
