As part of the National Catchment-based Flood Risk Assessment and Management (CFRAM) Programme, AA Screening Reports and, where necessary, Natura Impact Statements were carried out on all 29 Plans arising from the programme. These reports are all available online at the following website address: https://www.floodinfo.ie/publications/?t=24.

Appropriate Assessments are also carried out on an ongoing basis for Arterial Drainage Maintenance operations. These operations have been sub-divided in thirty one catchments nationally and the Appropriate Assessments are carried out through a national framework of five year assessments for these catchments. This is a rolling programme, including AA Screening for each catchment and an associated Natura Impact Statement as required, updated on a five yearly basis. All reports are shortly to be made available online to the public. Details on where they can be accessed will be provided to the Deputy as soon as they are available.
