In recent years, we have seen the real and often devastating impact floods can have on people’s lives. As part of the Co-operation Agreement with Welsh Government, Plaid Cymru has secured a package of funding totalling £214 million over the next three years, to be invested in flood mitigation and management.
Plaid Cymru will also work with Welsh Government to commission an independent review of the local government section 19 and Natural Resources Wales reports into extreme flooding in winter 2020- 21 and act on its recommendations.
Action on Flooding
When floods devastated communities across Rhondda Cynon Taf in February 2020, Plaid Cymru Councillors were central to coordinating the support required by residents. This included contacting insurance companies, organising emergency housing and clearing of homes, coordinating donations and volunteers as well as securing long-term support for those affected.
Plaid Cymru Councillors also led the calls for an independent inquiry into the floods - a campaign that is on-going. Many are also now involved in supporting local Flood Action Groups.
