Under Section 21 of the Flood and Water Management Act (2010)we, as the Lead Local Flood Authority, must maintain this register.
This could include a wide variety of different assets and features including culverts, weirs, bridges and a multitude of other structures which have the potential to affect flow of water.
We have the power to deem a feature or asset as a significant flood risk management asset.
If this is the case for a given structure, our permission will be required if any changes are to be made to these structures.
Owners of assets and features on the asset register must maintain their assets and ensure that they are working fully.
We have the power to enforce the owners of registered assets to carry out this duty.
The location of features and assets included in the significant risk asset register are available to view on request by contacting our Flood Risk Team by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
