Upper Cockle Creek Flood Study

Thank you for your feedback on the Upper Cockle Creek Flood Study and Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan Final Draft Reports. We are now reviewing the submissions.

Council has prepared a comprehensive draft flood study and risk management study and plan for the Upper Cockle Creek catchment, which defines the nature of flood risk in the area and provides management recommendations for more effective flood planning. The study area includes Edgeworth, Cameron Park, West Wallsend, Barnsley, Holmesville, Glendale and Killingworth.


Feedback on the Upper Cockle Creek Flood Study and Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan Final Draft Reports will be reported and appropriately incorporated into the final draft submitted to Council for endorsement. Once endorsed, Council Officers will implement the Plan. This is expected to occur in mid-late 2019.
