What is a Flood Level Certificate?
A Flood Level Certificate provides information on the potential impacts of flooding on a property during the 1% annual exceedance probability (AEP) flood event.
If Council possesses flood information for the subject land, the certificate will give an estimate flood level for the property in Australian Height Datum (AHD). A Flood Level Certificate is only available where Council has in its possession flood studies or historical information, and does not take into consideration Council's planning controls or policies.
Applying for a Flood Level Certificate
Applicants must complete and submit Council's Application for Flood Levels and pay the appropriate fee.
It is the responsibility of the applicant to obtain the services of a Registered Surveyor in order to determine the actual site levels. A copy of the site levels must be submitted with the application.
