Preliminary flood risk assessment
The Preliminary Flood Risk Assessment is an overview of flood risk from groundwater, ordinary watercourses, surface water, main rivers and the sea. This assessment was reviewed in 2017 using all relevant flood risk data and information. It was agreed with Natural Resources Wales on 19 October 2017.
These statements describe the review of the assessment of risk since the preliminary assessment report was published in 2011.
Past flood risk
There has been a review of flooding experienced since the publication of the first Preliminary Flood Risk Assessment Report in 2011. Since then, no floods have caused locally significant consequences.
Future flood risk
No new information identified since the publication of the first Preliminary Flood Risk Assessment Report in 2011 has altered our understanding of future flood risk.
Flood risk areas
Flood risk areas in Wales will be reviewed as part of a consolidated preliminary flood risk assessment covering all sources of flood risk by 22 December 2018.
