Eastern CFRAM Public Consultation Days – Draft Flood Maps – Dublin City

Printer-friendly version

The national Catchment-based Flood Risk Assessment and Management (CFRAM) Programme, which is being implemented through six regional studies, is a strategic approach that recognises the need, in line with international best practice, to move to a more sustainable, planned and risk-based approach to dealing with flooding problems. Under the Programme, which involves a comprehensive flood risk assessment focused on 300 areas of potentially significant flood risk (Areas for Further Assessment), detailed flood maps are being produced and flood risk management measures will be assessed and taken to outline design. These measures will be prioritised and set out in Flood Risk Management Plans.

RPS, who are conducting the Eastern CFRAM Study, on behalf of the OPW and with the support of Dublin City Council, have produced Draft Flood Maps for the following areas:

  • DUBLIN CITY (areas of flood risk, including tidal flood risk, along the River Liffey from Islandbridge to Dublin Port);
  • CLONTARF, Dublin 3 (Coastal flood risk in areas from Fairview Pk. to the Dollymount Ave./Clontarf Rd. junction;
  • SANDYMOUNT, Dublin 4 (Coastal flood risk in areas from Beach Rd./Sean Moore Pk. to the Merrion gates);
  • CHAPELIZOD, Dublin 20 (including the River Liffey from Lucan to Chapelizod and the lower reaches of the River Griffeen);
  • RAHENY, Dublin 5 (areas of flood risk along the River Santry from the M50 Junction 4 area to Raheny village, including the Swords Rd./Northwood Ave. junction area, and coastal flood risk in areas from the Dollymount Ave./Clontarf Rd. junction to the James Larkin Rd./Howth Rd. junction, including the Bull Island Causeway).

To provide an opportunity for all interested persons to view and comment on these maps, Public Consultation Days will be held as follows:
