As part of the development of the Flood Relief Scheme, the public will be invited to participate in consultation events with the project team, as well as having access to Scheme documents and updates through this website.
The public are encouraged to participate in Public Consultation events which will be held at various stages throughout the project and to submit any information relevant to flooding in the area to the project team.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 public health emergency an Opening Public Consultation Day (PCD) will not be held in person. Instead Opening Public Consultation will be via an online consultation portal (https://countydonegalfrs.ie/burnfootfrs/index.php/opening-public-consultation/) with postal drops commencing on 9th November 2020. The Public Consultation portal will remain open for the following six weeks. A second Public Consultation Event will be held once a preferred scheme has been identified and agreed with the Steering Group.
The project team can be contacted with queries / submissions by both email and post.
