Floodplain Management Policy

The objective of the Floodplain Management Policy is to implement and maintain a Floodplain Management Strategy. In addition to outlining the areas affected by flooding and the criteria for assessing proposals for development within these areas, the Policy makes provision for development of flood protected land. There are currently six identified areas of flood protected land;

  • Behind the Havannah Street Levee
  • Morrisset Street Levee
  • Stockland Drive Levee
  • Kelso Industrial Area Levee
  • Upfold Street
  • Gilmour Street

Council's Floodplain Management Policy can be accessed in Flood History.
