The Second Cycle Northern Ireland Flood Risk Management Plan (FRMP) 2021 - 2027 is a requirement under The Water Environment (Floods Directive) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2009.

The Plan focuses on the 12 Areas of Potential Significant Flood Risk (APSFR), with specific measures tailored to manage flood risk in particular locations.

The Plan also sets out a series of Regional Measures which apply across all of Northern Ireland, supporting the sustainable management of flood risk for both APSFR and the wider River Basin Districts.


In line with the requirement of the Floods Directive Regulations and as part of the process of developing the FRMP, DfI issued a draft FRMP for Public Consultation in December 2020 to June 2021.

The Public Consultation Report (included below) summarises the responses received and considers whether any changes should be made as a result of the consultation exercise.
