Pontypridd & Taff Ely Flooding Report Graphic

I am pleased to publish the Pontypridd and Taff Ely Flooding Report for local residents which I have worked with in conjunction with our local Member of the Senedd, Mick Antoniw MS.

There are a number of take home recommendations in the report which are listed below:

  1. A fund needs to be set up to ensure everyone who needs practical ‘flood resilience’ equipment gets it, regardless of affordability.
  2. A network of flood ambassadors set up in all the affected communities – they would play a central role in ensuring community readiness is maintained.
  3. Periodic flood warning drills to be carried by NRW and the emergency services in the affected communities.
  4. Local stocks of sandbags to be made available for when needed. Controlling access to these could be one of the functions of the flood ambassadors.
  5. Urgent infrastructure repairs at two bridges across the River Taff – at Castle Inn and Berw Road in Pontypridd.
  6. An assessment of the impact of flooding on mental health (particularly on older people and children) by the local health board.
