The Flood Risk Management Plan (FRMP), established by Directive 2007/60/EC (the so-called ‘Floods Directive’), aims at assessing and managing flood risk at district level to reduce negative consequences for human health, the environment, cultural heritage and economic activities.
Directive 2007/60/EC was transposed into national law by Legislative Decree n. 49 of 2010 which identified River Basin District Authorities as competent authorities as regards to the provisions of the Floods Directive and the Regions and the National Civil Protection Department as the public bodies which set up and implement the flood risk alert system for civil protection purposes.
FRMPs are updated every 6-years in accordance with the planning cycles foreseen by the Directive. The first FRMPs covered the implementation cycle 2015-2021.
The Permanent Institutional Conference – CIP (Conferenza Istituzionale Permanente) – has adopted the second update of the Flood Risk Management Plan on December 20th, 2021 (Decision n. 26).
Which are the changes that the CIP decision introduced on the district’s territory?
• Flood hazard and risk maps are in force on the whole district’s territory.
• The flood risk management plan and flood hazard and risk maps are adopted and immediately in force as safeguard measures in the Arno, Serchio and the Tuscan regional basins.
• Article 4, 6 and 14 and Annexes and the flood hazard and risk maps are adopted and in force as safeguard measures in the Magra and regional Ligurian basins
• Until the approval of the FRMP by Decree of the President of the Council of Ministers, the basin plan on hydrogeological risk (PAI) is in force in the Magra and regional Ligurian basins
• After the entry into force of the FRMP (publication of the Decree of the President of the Council of Ministers on the official Journal) and the consequent approval and entry into force of a the Regional law – which will implement the FRMP provisions with specific regard to land planning- the FRMP will ament the PAI in the territory of the Liguria Region.
It should be noted, therefore, that for the purposes of applying the current regulations on hydraulic risk (PGRA and PAI), the flood hazard and risk maps to be referred to are those contained in the latter plans, which are, however, constantly updated and coordinated with the current knowledge framework.
Finally, as mentioned in the Plan Regulations, in the Arno river basin, the PAI (approved Decree of the President of the Council of Minister of 11.5.1999) is still in force, while in the Magra river basin and in the Ligurian basins the river restoration buffer strips maps – as defined in the respective PAIs-and their regulations, apply.
