Completion of the public consultation exercise for the draft Flood Risk Management Plans

Draft Flood Risk Management Plans have been developed as part of the process of implementing the European Union Directive on managing Flood Risk (the Floods Directive 2007/60/EC).

Consulting on the Plans

A public consultation on the draft Plans ended on 22 June 2015.  As result of this consultation, twenty eight responses were received from a range of government bodies, environmental organisations, fishery interest groups and other interested parties.

DfI Rivers has considered the responses to the consultation and has prepared a balanced and comprehensive ‘The Response to the Consultation on the draft Flood Risk Management Plans’ document. We will be writing to all respondents to the Consultation in due course.

Production of final Flood Risk Management Plans

Following the Public Consultation, we have taken account of the comments received during the production of final Flood Risk Management Plans. It should be noted that the Consultation has not necessitated a significant change to the objectives and measures identified to manage flood risk, over the life time of the Plans.

In accordance with the requirements of the Floods Directive, the final Flood Risk Management Plans covering the 6 year period 2015-21, are in the process of being completed and will then be made available via this website.
