Draft Floodplain Management Policy open for comments

Local Councils are responsible for managing flood risk, and the City of Sydney’s draft Interim Floodplain Management Policy  outlines our approach to managing flooding issues.  The policy will ensure development in the City is not at undue risk of flood, and that proposals do not increase flood risk for existing properties.

The interim policy is now on public exhibition. It will operate until the City completes floodplain risk management plans for the City's entire local area and then integrates these outcomes into planning controls.  View the On Exhibition page. Submissions close 28 October 2013.
