Flood Check Property Report and the new draft planning scheme
Council’s Flood Check Property Report has been updated to provide information to support the new draft Planning Scheme provisions. The New Draft Planning Scheme is on display from 1 July through to 21 August 2015, see New Draft Planning Scheme for further details.
The New Draft Planning Scheme section of the Flood Check Property Report contains the following information that assists in applying the new draft Planning Scheme provisions:
- if the property is in the Flood Planning Area
- maximum flow velocity when identified in a high or medium risk area in the Flood Planning Area
- level of the Defined Flood Event for both Flood and Storm Tide
Please note that Council is currently working through updating the Flood Check Property Reports with further information regarding Coastal hazards specifically storm tide inundation. The Flood Check Property Reports will be updated by 10 July.
Please note that this information should be read in conjunction with the new draft Planning Scheme, in particular the Coastal hazard overlay and Flood hazard overlay.
