Flood planning for LT Creek

Consultation has concluded

Council adopted the LT Creek Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan at its meeting on 23 April 2013. The Plan will assist Council in planning and managing existing and future flood risks.

Over the last two years, Council has been investigating the floodplain risks at Fassifern and Fennell Bay and the surrounding area. We encouraged landholders, residents and businesses in these areas to review the draft Plan and provide feedback during the exhibition period.

The Plan identifies and assesses the flood management options available, potential economic or ecological costs and potential impacts of flooding on local properties. Community input into this study helped to identify folding issues and evaluate possible management options.

It ranks the various available flood risk management measures and provides recommendations and a guide for completion.

Some of the high-priority measures include:

  • Developing flood awareness programs;

  • improving flood warnings;

  • reviewing access for properties during a flooding event;

  • applying floor level controls to reduce flood damages; and

  • assessing sewerage systems to ensure safety during a flooding event.
