Larne Area Plan 2010
The Department of Agriculture (D.A.N.I.), Rivers Agency is responsible for drainage and will be consulted in relation to the following aspects of applications for development; susceptibility of land to flooding, discharge of storm water to watercourses and requirements with regard to designated watercourses.
In accordance with Government policy, DANI is committed to the introduction of procedures for the recovery of contributions towards the costs of drainage infrastructure improvement works. Such contributions may be expected from developers when an appropriate methodology is decided.
Whereas drainage works necessary to facilitate development may be identified as being viable, it is emphasised that their execution must be dependent on the availability of resources, bearing in mind competing priorities in Rivers Agency works programme.
