Water, Flooding and Sustainable Drainage Consultation

Closed 3 Jun 2022

Opened 11 Mar 2022

Overview

The Department is seeking views on a number of policy proposals to improve how water, sewerage and flooding services are delivered in Northern Ireland. The proposals being consulted on will need to be implemented by introducing new legislation. The public’s views will play a key part in this process and we welcome your comments on the policy proposals contained within this consultation paper.

The consultation focuses on nine key policy areas where the Department for Infrastructure (“the Department”) considers that current policy could benefit from change.
