National Strategy on Sea Defences Flooding and Coastal Erosion

Responsibility for coastline management has now passed to the DOI, further information can be found on their IOMFloodHub website.

The Transfer of Function Order (TOFO) was approved by Tynwald and came into effect on 1 November 2020. The Department of Infrastructure (DOI) formed the Flood Management Division, which is responsible for, and must generally supervise, all matters relating to Flood Risk Management (FRM). Our new division, the 'Flood Management Division', has brought together staff from both the Manx Utilities Authority and the DOI. The staff of the Department's Met Office are also incorporated into this team.
