Flood Risk Management Plan

Flooding remains a key threat to communities across Wales, and managing this risk through careful planning is important to minimise the risk to communities. Flood risk management planning allows risk management authorities to develop a better understanding of risk from all sources of flooding and agree priorities to manage that risk.

This Flood Risk Management Plan has been developed with this in mind and sets out how Torfaen County Borough Council will over the next 6 years manage flooding so that the communities most at risk and the environment benefit the most. In doing so, this FRMP takes forward the objectives and actions set out in our Flood Risk Management Strategy.

This FRMP also aims to achieve some of the objectives set out in the Welsh Government’s National Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Strategy 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.
  • Prioritising investment in the most at risk communities
