Asset Register

Under Section 21 of the Flood and Water Management Act 2010, Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council as the Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA) is required to maintain a register and record of all known and recorded structures and features that, in the opinion of the authority, are likely to have a significant effect on flood risk in the area.

A flood asset is a structure or feature than can affect the flow or storage of water. These can be manmade or a natural feature of the environment that have an impact on flood risk. This could include culverts, weirs, bridges, walls and urban drainage systems, among other examples.

The asset record is kept and maintained by Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council and includes detailed information about each of the assets contained within it such as information on ownership and state of repair. The asset record is not publically available.

The asset register contains only basic information about the structures and features deemed to have an impact on flood risk, such as location and type of structure.

Assets can be public or private assets however inclusion on the Asset Register or Record alone does not afford an asset any increased maintenance provision. Private assets, even those on the Council’s Asset Register and Record, will remain the maintenance responsibility of the private landowner.

The Council as a Lead Local Flood Authority is also required to input asset data into the National Flood Asset Database which records flood infrastructure in Wales and is owned and maintained by Natural Resources Wales. For more information you can view the National Flood Asset Database here.
