Managing flood risk in your neighbourhood – Marrickville Valley Catchment

Background

In 2015, Council engaged a consultant, Cardno, to conduct the Marrickville Valley Flood Risk Management Study and Plan. The plan identifies options for reducing flood risk and builds on the Marrickville Valley Flood Study which Council adopted in 2013.

In 2015, community members were invited to provide information on past storm events. The information received, along with technical assessments, was used to develop options to reduce flood risk. The community was then invited to give feedback on these options in March/ April 2017. The feedback received helped inform the draft Marrickville Valley Flood Risk Management Study and Plan.

What’s happening now?

Council is seeking feedback from the community on the draft plan to mitigate flooding in the Marrickville Valley area.

The plan identifies priority actions for reducing flood risk in the catchment including:

  • better flood planning;
  • controls on development; and
  • new or upgraded stormwater systems

The flood mitigation priorities are based on a range of social, economic and environmental factors which were developed in consultation with the community, owners of flood affected properties, the State Emergency Service and other agencies such as Sydney Water and Roads and Maritime Services.

Have your say

You are invited provide feedback on the draft flood risk management plan by completing the form below.

The last day to provide feedback is 27 August 2017.

What happens next?

The feedback received will be used to refine and finalise the Marrickville Valley Flood Risk Management Study and Plan. The plan will then be presented to Council for endorsement. This is expected to happen in September 2017.

The final plan will guide Council’s flood management works in the Marrickville Valley catchment for the next 10+ years. Measures to mitigate flooding will be implemented based on the priority of options in the study, synergies between options, and anticipated future works by Council and other agencies. As a guide:

  • Planning and policy measures can generally be implemented within one to three years, and
  • Priority Infrastructure measures can generally be implemented within three to ten years, as funding and opportunities arise.
