The production of the Flood Risk Management Plan is a requirement of the Flood Risk Regulations 2009. The Flood Risk Management Plan sets out how Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council, in its capacity as a Lead Local Flood Authority, will manage the risk of flooding from ordinary watercourses, surface water and groundwater, over the next 6 years.
The Flood Risk Management Plan takes forward the objectives and measures set out in our current Local Flood Risk Management Strategy.
The Flood Risk Management Plan also aims to achieve some of the objectives set out in the Welsh Government’s National Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Strategy (FCERM) which provides the national framework for flood and coastal erosion risk management in Wales through four overarching objectives:
- Reducing the consequences for individuals, communities, businesses and the environment from flooding and coastal erosion;
- Raising awareness of and engaging people in the response to flood and coastal erosion risk;
- Providing an effective and sustained response to flood and coastal erosion events; and
- Prioritising investment in the most at risk communities
Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council’s current Flood Risk Management Plan and relevant Appendices were published in 2015.
