Register of structures and features

Under section 21 of the Flood and Water Management Act 2010, we in our role as an lead local flood authority (LLFA) are required to keep a register of structures or features which it considers to have a significant effect on flood risk within Staffordshire.

We have undertaken work to identify drainage and flood defence structures and will continue to update this important source of information. From this list of structures we will create a subset of features which we believe to have a significant influence on flood risk and this will form our asset register.

As the majority of the data is owned by third parties and is often out of date, we are unable to release the information online. If you would like to view the asset register then please contact us for more information.

Planning for floods

When closer to completion, the asset register will be used to produce operational response plans which give information on the location of important drainage and flood defence assets in a particular area.

These plans will indicate specific responsibilities and actions to be taken by the various front line response teams. The plans can also identify areas where regular maintenance is critical.

Designation of third-party assets

Schedule 1 of the Flood and Water Management Act 2010 grants us the power to designate features which can have an effect on flood risk.

Designated assets can include natural features or man-made structures (e.g. a natural embankment or a garden wall) and require our formal consent to alter, remove, or replace them.

We will consider carefully the need to designate features on a case-by-case basis and will take into account the risk of flooding to property.
