Adapting Swansea: Planning for future flood risks

Thank you for all of the tidal inundation and flooding survey responses received. We are now reviewing the information to assist us in developing a combined Local Adaptation Plan for Pelican, Blacksmiths, Swansea and surrounds. Please view the initial survey results engagement summary and the follow-up survey results engagement summary.

The impacts of climate change and tidal inundation are expected to develop gradually over coming decades. We are planning for them now so that when the time comes to act, we have a plan in place to mitigate flooding and tidal inundation risks as much as possible.

We’ve recently completed a feasibility assessment on a number of shortlisted adaptation options determined by the joint Council and Community Working Group.

The following online resources are available to provide more information on the feasibility assessment outcomes and upcoming cost benefit analysis.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    Part of the local adaptation planning process involves determining when particular actions need to be taken. This survey will help the project team understand the community acceptance and tolerance levels of tidal inundation and establish the community’s threshold for potential flooding and inundation impacts. This is measured by asking how your household would accept the possible changes, such as to your lifestyle and property, access to roads and footpaths to visit shops and services, and outdoor spaces.
