Draft Lower Macleay River Flood Study

The Lower Macleay has a history of significant flood events and Council is seeking community feedback on a Draft Lower Macleay Flood Study which outlines the nature and extent of the flood problem.

At the Council September Ordinary Meeting resolved to place the Draft Lower Macleay Flood Study onto public exhibition until 28 October. Feedback will inform the final Study to be presented at the 17 December Council meeting. From there a Draft Floodplain Risk Management Study and a Floodplain Risk Management Plan will be developed, expected by the end of 2020. The primary goal of this set of documents is to reduce the impact and risk of flood events.
