Welcome to our website. NIFCA has now entered its 9th year of operational activity, following its establishment under the provisions of the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009 and inception on 1st April 2011. The website covers a range of the Authority’s activity; you can find publications created by our environmental and enforcement teams, view news and updates from the Authority and our members and you can also subscribe to our quarterly newsletter.

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to see posts about our recent activity throughout the district by clicking on the links below. And of course, please do not hesitate to telephone or email us if you have any queries or require any assistance, and if you see one of Officers out on the coast, please feel free to say hello.

Best wishes to all of our stakeholders and anyone with an interest in the work of NIFCA.
