What is the purpose of the LT Creek Floodplain Risk Management Plan?
Once finalised, the Plan will assist Council in planning and managing existing and future flood risks.
The draft Plan identifies and assesses the flood management options available, potential economic or ecological costs and potential impacts of flooding on local properties.
It ranks the various available flood risk management measures and provides recommendations and a guide for completion.
