Coffs Creek Floodplain Risk Management Study

​The 1996 flood prompted Council to commission a revised Flood Study to further investigate the cause and severity of this flood. The review indicated that the magnitude of flood problems within the catchment was greater than had previously been understood.

Council subsequently commissioned a Floodplain Risk Management Study to investigate and recommend measures to either manage or reduce flooding problems within the catchment. Council adopted the study and plan and has implemented measures recommended in the plan as funds and grants become available.

Council now has detailed flood information for the Coffs Creek catchment including 'flood risk' mapping for Coffs Harbour and detailed planning controls relating to the risk categories to assist in the assessment of development applications and provide strategic direction for the city.

A draft report for Coffs Creek and Park Beach Flood Study that reviews available data, development and detention basin construction has been received by Council and is expected to be placed on public exhibition in early 2018.
