Managing flood risk in your neighbourhood – former Leichhardt LGA

Background

Council engaged consultants, Cardno, to conduct the Leichhardt Flood Study which was completed in 2014. The study determined where flood water will run, how the existing drainage system will cope and which properties are affected.

Using this information, Council has developed a flood risk management study and plan which identifies options for identifying options for reducing flood risk including:

  • better emergency planning;
  • controls on development; and
  • infrastructure work to change flood behaviour.

What's happening now?

Council is seeking feedback from the community on the draft plan to manage flooding in the former Leichhardt local government area.
