The preparation of a Flood Risk Management Plan (the Plan) is 3rd stage of the cyclical process towards the implementation of the European Directive on the Assessment and Management of Flood Risks (2007/60/EC), transposed in Northern Ireland to The Water Environment (Floods Directive) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2009. The Plan applies mainly to areas within NI that have been identified as being at potential significant flood risk. The Plan sets objectives for the purpose of managing flood risk and then identifies a range of measures/actions that can be undertaken to achieve these objectives.
