Welcome to our website. NIFCA is now approaching the end of its 8th year of operational activity, following its establishment under the provisions of the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009 and inception on 1st April 2011. Throughout that time, our website has continued to develop and undergo enhancements to provide the maximum possible level of information and accessibility to everyone who is interested in our work.

The website covers the whole range of the Authority’s activity and I hope you can find what you are looking for and that you find it to be both interesting and informative.

Please feel free to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for updates on our recent activity and also do not hesitate to telephone or email us if you have any queries or require any assistance.

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

Mike Hardy
Chief Executive
