Willoughby City Council is seeking input from the local community to prepare a Flood Study for the catchments that drain to Flat Rock Creek.

Please take a minute or two to read the survey questions and provide responses where you can by Friday 17th February 2017.

The responses to this questionnaire will assist Council to 'ground truth' a Flood Study being conducted by specialist hydrology consultants. The Flood Study will take about 6 months to complete and will provide Council with information on the nature and extent of flooding in the study area.

A Newsletter in the documents section provides a brief background to the Flood Study process and its outcomes.

Following the completion of the Flood Study, Council will undertake a Floodplain Risk Management Study. This Study will be a joint project between Council and NSW Office of Environment & Heritage which will aim to build community resilience towards flooding through informing better planning of development, emergency management and community awareness.

Council will establish a Floodplain Management Committee made up of relevant Council members, state government agencies and local community representatives. If you would like to volunteer to act as a community representative on the Committee, please contact Council’s Drainage/Design Engineer Scott Kavanagh by email at: Scott.Kavanagh@Willoughby.nsw.gov.au
