Blackpool Flood Relief Scheme - Submission for Ministerial Confirmation


The Office of Public Works through the Arterial Drainage Acts has submitted the proposal for the Blackpool Flood Relief Scheme to the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform for formal Confirmation. The Minister will, over the coming months, undertake an environmental assessment of the proposed scheme. This assessment will be in line with required legislative requirements and will involve a public consultation. The appointment of a Contractor for this scheme will be progressed following formal Ministerial Confirmation. 

The scheme will be funded from within the allocated €1 billion for flood risk management over the period 2018 - 2027. Provision for the cost of the Scheme is included in the Office of Public Works' multi annual capital allocation.

The Confirmation material, including the EIAR and NIS are available in the project documents.
