Flood hazard mapping and assessment

This $3 million Hazard mapping project, being led by the Attorney-General’s Department – Planning and Land Use Services (AGD-PLUS) is producing additional flood studies, expanded outputs from existing flood studies, LIDAR, and improved flood policies in the Planning and Design Code (the Code).

The aim is to provide a more contemporary and consistent approach for planning decisions and emergency management. The mapping will be fit for purpose and easily understood, enabling the planning process to be quicker and simpler and ensuring that developments consider the risk of flood.
