Some of the elements of the Flood and Water Management Act (FWMA) 2010 have already been implemented and these include:
- Establishing and maintaining a register of flood risk management assets with a record of each structure, together with details of ownership and state of repair, which may affect a flood risk. The map can be viewed at the bottom of this page.
- Undertaking a Preliminary Flood Risk Assessment for local sources of flood risk, primarily from surface run off, groundwater and ordinary watercourses.
All flood risk management organisations have a duty to co-operate and will need to work in partnership with us on flood risk management.
