Flood risk asset register
We have compiled a record of more than 1,000 structures which we consider significantly affect whether or not areas will flood in Leicester.
These structures may have been built specifically as a flood defence, such as the storm detention area in Knighton Park, or act informally such as a bridge or wall next to a watercourse.
We have the power to designate assets, meaning our permission is required to alter or demolish the asset. The structures on this register are not designated assets - there is no statutory protection for these assets except any exercised through other methods. More information on designating assets can be downloaded below.
We are currently considering whether or not to designate any assets within the city. These decisions will consider the impact upon the owners of structures and the likely impact upon flood risk.
As lead local flood authority we have to keep a record of assets that have been designated. Currently, there are none, but a register will be made available below if any are selected. Guidance on designated assets is available to download below.
The latest version of the asset register is available to download below. Please contact us if you would like to view the register in another format.
