Hawkesbury City Council has recently prepared the Draft Flood Policy 2020 following a review of Council’s current Development of Flood Liable Land Policy 2012 and Regional Flood Mitigation in the Hawkesbury-Nepean Valley Policy 2011 in order to provide up-to-date and relevant, best practice controls to meet the requirements of Clause 6.3 – Flood planning of Hawkesbury Local Environmental Plan 2012, and to clearly express how a proposed development’s suitability is assessed in relation to the impacts of flooding.

The purpose of the Draft Flood Policy 2020 is to:

  • highlight Council’s position in respect of the need for a collaborative approach across all levels of government to respond to issues associated with floodplain management across the Hawkesbury-Nepean Valley, and
  • set the information and development controls to be used for the preparation and assessment of Development Applications for land affected by the 1 in 100 year flood event to address the requirements of Clause 6.3 Flood planning of Hawkesbury Local Environmental Plan 2012.

At its meeting on 11 August 2020, Council resolved to place the Draft Flood Policy 2020 on public exhibition.
