Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Under the NSW Government’s Flood Prone Land Policy, Councils are responsible for managing flood affected areas to help reduce risk to people and property.

Willoughby City Council has been developing a flood risk management plan for the Flat Rock Creek Catchment and is exhibiting the final draft to the community for comment.

In 2018 Council completed a detailed flood study which identified flood risks determined the flood behaviour due to local storm runoff from a range of flood events.

Now, with the support of the NSW Government’s Floodplain Management Program(External link), Council is undertaking a FPRMS&P to look at ways to manage the flooding problems identified in the 2018 study while attempting to reduce the risk of flooding to people, property, infrastructure and assets across the catchment.

The Flat Rock Creek Floodplain RIsk Management Study and Plan is being prepared by WMA Water and is jointly funded by Council and the NSW Government.

Community Consultation

Those who live, work or visit the Flat Rock Creek Catchment are invited to answer the below Submission and comments survey. This questionnaire is designed to provide Council with input on the Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan from the community and key stakeholders. It furthers the communities input from the Intial questionnaire as part of the 2018 Study and the following Public Exhibition of this study.

This survey will close on COB 29th May 2020.

Online and Phone - Information Sessions:

Typically during the exhibition period Council would have Community 'Drop In" sessions to provide further information to interested residents and stakeholders. However given the current Covid-19 Pandemic these sessions will instead be held online via Zoom or Telephone with officers and the Consultants undertaking the study.

These sessions will be held at any suitable time for residents / stakeholders throughout the exhibition period and you are invited to register your interest with Scott Kavanagh the project officer via email scott.kavanagh@willoughby.nsw.gov.au to schedule a time. Typically these sessions last 15 minutes.
