Council has flood information for many areas across the LGA. This includes information about past and/or anticipated future flood levels, and flood risk precincts.
All properties within the Flood Planning Area have flood information available. To view the Flood Planning Area, please visit Councils Online Mapping Tool. Council does not have flood level information for all properties, so if your property is outside of the Flood Planning Area you should call us on (02) 6648 4000 to check if information is available before you start an application.
There are two main ways you can get information from Council about how flooding affects your property:
The flood information we are able provide in this certificate will vary between catchments, and not all of the information may be available for all properties.
2. Apply for a Planning Certificate. You'll need to request a combined 10.7(2) and 10.7(5) planning certificate to get information about whether the property is flood affected, the 1% AEP (100 year ARI) flood level and flood planning level.
Alternatively, to check if your property is covered by the Flood Planning Level, please see Councils Online Mapping Tool.
