Flood Risk Management Plans

The Flood Risk Management Plans present measures intended to manage and reduce flood risk. Each River Basin District has been divided into areas called Units of Management (UoM), of which there are 32 in total in the Republic of Ireland. There is a FRMP for each UoM, some but some plans cover two UoMs. Each UoM contains a number of Areas for Further Assessment (AFAs). To view the plan associated with each numbered UoM, click the hyperlinked consultation date (which appears in blue) on the far right-hand side of the table below (note: some are no longer available now that the consultation period has elapsed). All public consultations are now closed. Links to the submissions made by SWAN on each FRMP are below. The OPW website is here.
