Flood prevention and managing the risk of flooding

Asset register

The register

We maintain a register and record of assets that have a significant impact on the risk of flooding. (This is required by the Flood and Water Management Act.)

An asset is a structure or feature that can affect the flow or storage of water. For example a wall next to a river could stop water from flooding houses during heavy rain. The wall could be considered an asset. Pipes in the ground, bridges and road gullies are other examples of assets that can affect flood risk.

Assets in your local area

The Asset register is an online record of assets in the borough. The register contains information about the location, condition and ownership (where available) of each asset. The register does not show you where there is a risk of flooding, but you can use the register to see what assets are in your local area. 

If you would like to know more about the risk of flooding in your area please use the Environment agency's flood map. 

How to use the Asset register

Launch the asset register and then zoom into the desired area on the map. As the map enlarges more assets will be visible. To view information about a particular asset click on the asset and information will appear in a pop up box. The key in the corner of the map details what each symbol stands for.
