About the Floodplain Risk Management Study

Under the NSW Government’s Flood Prone Land Policy, Councils are responsible for managing flood-affected areas to help reduce the risk to people and property. Council staff, consultants WMA Water and the shire Floodplain Management Committee, worked together to develop the draft Study and Plan. 

This study builds on the North Byron Flood Study, which was adopted by Council in 2017, and community consultation undertaken in early 2018. The study was developed by Council’s consultants WMA Water. The study assesses the current and future flood risk to the catchment, considers the full range of options available to manage that risk and recommends options to be included in the subsequent Floodplain Risk Management Plan.

What happens next?

Following the consultation period on the draft Management Study, all comments and feedback will be compiled and reviewed, and reported back to Council's Floodplain Management Committee and incorporated into the Management Study where appropriate.
