Flood Risk Areas

Natural Resources Wales

Flood Risk Areas have been defined by Lead Local Flood Authorities. These areas cover surface water flooding only. Groundwater, coastal, reservoir failure, water main and river flooding are not covered. These are based on combining risk to people, critical services and commercial and public assets, and detailed flood modelling. The Flood Risk Areas show areas where the risk to flooding has the greatest impact on residential buildings and critical infrastructure i.e. the largest cities where there are the most residential properties and infrastructure in relation to the risk of flooding. Further detail on the methodology is available at http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk/research/planning/125459.aspx
