Floodplain Risk Management – Moree and Surrounds
Under the NSW Government’s Flood Prone Land Policy, councils across NSW are responsible for the management of flood liable land.
We have a responsibility to manage floodplains to ensure that any:
- New development will not experience undue flood risk; and
- Existing development will not be adversely flood affected through increased damage or hazard as a result of any new development.
We need to have a policy with respect to controlling development on flood prone land and in doing so, be satisfied that all new development adequately minimises the risk to human life and damage to property, and avoids significant adverse impacts on flood behaviour and the environment.
