Flood planning in Dora Creek

Consultation has concluded

Comments on the draft Dora Creek Flood Study, Floodplain Risk Management Study and Floodplain Risk Management Plan have now closed.

Over the coming weeks, Council officers will review the submissions received for the Dora Creek Flood Study, Floodplain Risk Management Study and Floodplain Risk Management Plan. Once feedback has been collated, a report which will include any appropriate amendments to the flood risk management options, is expected to be presented to councillors next year.

These documents define the nature of flood risk in the area and provide management recommendations for more effective flood planning. This assessment updates the previous 1986 Dora Creek Flood Study.

The floodplain risk management study builds on the flood study to identify a number of measures, which can be used to reduce flood risks in the catchment in the future such as:

  • setting appropriate levels for development control;
  • identifying works to reduce flooding; and
  • raising community awareness of flooding issues so that they can take necessary precautions.

The floodplain risk management plan identifies which of the options considered in the risk management study are recommended for adoption by Council.

It is important for the community to be involved in these studies and be aware of the planning required to protect assets and people in their area.
