Deletion of the reference to the Flood Planning Map would remove cadastral inaccuracies from the SLEP 2013 provisions and ensure flood information can be regularly updated without the need for future Planning Proposals.
The planning proposal aims to amend SLEP 2013 to:
Remove reference to the “Flood Planning Map”;
Delete the Flood Planning Map from the suite of SLEP 2013 maps; and
Delete the Definition of Flood Planning Map.
In future, Council would rely on its existing flood mapping, which identifies the 1955 Flood Level, Flood Risk Management Plan and NSW Floodplain Development Manual for flood planning. Council also recently received grant funding from the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) to complete a review and update its flood information.
