  • Background

    4 months ago

    There are over 15,000 properties on the Northern Beaches which are identified as being potentially impacted by flooding. The three former Northern Beaches councils all had well developed approaches to flood risk management, however each was different in a number of ways which results in different experiences and outcomes for flood affected residents and businesses. The creation of the Northern Beaches Council gives us an opportunity to harmonise how flooding is managed in order to create clarity and consistency for our community.

    In order to deliver this consistency, the three existing Development Control Plans (DCPs) are proposed to be amended to create common flood controls, a new policy is proposed to be created, two policies are proposed to be amended and two policies proposed to be rescinded.

    Replacing varied and complex requirements for the management of flood prone land will provide greater clarity for all stakeholders involved in the process of developing flood prone land. The proposed controls strike an effective balance between managing flood risk, ensuring residents and businesses are only affected when the risk requires it, and ensuring development on flood prone land is not unnecessarily restricted.
