The management of flood-affected land is, primarily, the responsibility of Council.
Council aims to reduce private and public losses, as well as the liability on individual owners and occupiers of flood-affected land. At the same time, we recognise the benefits flowing from the use, occupation and development of flood-affected land.
We manage flood-affected land by:
- Conducting studies to identify areas of high and low risk
- Developing management plans that provide specific measures that are appropriate to those areas
- Placing conditions on major renovations and new developments on flood-prone land to minimise the impact of flooding.
Council has completed <INSERT PLAN> for major catchments.
