Consultation has concluded

Thank you for your feedback on the Upper Cockle Creek Flood Study and Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan Final Draft Reports. Your submissions have been considered and appropriately incorporated into the final documents that will be considered for adoption by Council on Monday 22 July.

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.


Once endorsed, Council Officers will implement the Plan. This is expected to occur in mid-late 2019.
