The Flood Risk Management Plan highlights the flood hazards and risks in the Areas of Potential Significant Flood Risk in NI from rivers, the sea and surface water. The plan identifies the Objectives and Measures that will be undertaken to manage the risk of flooding and sets out how the relevant authorities will work together with communities to manage flood risks.
At the beginning of this cycle, a Timetable and Work Programme for the preparation of the Northern Ireland Flood Risk Management Plan (FRMP) 2021-2027, was produced. The document outlined the proposed work programme for the preparation of the second cycle FRMP, and detailed the key deliverables and their deadlines.
The draft Timetable and Work Programme for the Preparation of the Northern Ireland FRMP (2021 – 2027) was published on 22 December 2018, for a six month public consultation exercise.
The final published Timetable and Work Programme and the associated Consultation Report can be viewed at:

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