The Pentre Flood Alleviation Scheme aims to address the flooding issues in the community of Pentre in the Rhondda Valley. This page provides details about the proposed works and their significance to the community of Pentre.
Natural Resources Wales’ (NRW) Flood Risk Assessment Wales (FRAW) maps identifies Pentre at a high risk of flooding from both fluvial and surface water and ordinary watercourse sources. Pentre is also identified as a priority area for flood alleviation works based on RCT’s Flood Risk Management Plan which further confirms the significant flood risk in the community.
The Pentre Flood Alleviation Scheme aims to develop and implement a program of flood alleviation measures in accordance with Welsh Government Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Business Case Guidance. This initiative is aligned with the principles of the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales Act), focusing on reducing the risk of flooding through the implimentation of sustainable long-term alleviation measures.
Rhondda Cynon Taf Council (RCTCBC), in collaboration with appointed consultants RPS, has conducted extensive screening and analysis of various options to address the flood risk in Pentre. This process has resulted in the identification of a preferred option for further development. Detailed information on the preferred option is available for review online through a virtual consultation space here and information will also be made available on the RCT consultations web page.
There will also be an opportunity to attend an in-person consultation event at the Canolfan Centre in Pentre which runs from the 29th and 30th June from 11am till 6pm.
We value the input of all stakeholders in shaping the Pentre Flood Alleviation Scheme. You are encouraged to participate in the consultation process by using any of the means mentioned above.
