Floodplain Management

The primary objective of the New South Wales Government’s Flood Prone Land Policy is to reduce the impact of flooding and flood liability on individual owners and occupiers of flood prone property, while recognising the benefits from the use, occupation and development of flood prone land. A merit-based approach is promoted that balances social, economic, environmental and flood risk elements to make sure development in the floodplain is appropriate and sustainable.
