Singleton Council is reviewing its 2012 Flood Risk Management Study and Plan. This study will provide a better understanding of Hunter River flooding across the proposed study area, and how best to manage these flood risks.
This study will improve the accuracy and resolution of Councils existing flood mapping by making use of recently available high resolution topographic data.
This mapping will be used to identify flood risks and possible flood mitigation options, including updating Council’s flood planning controls.
In order to maximise the effectiveness and value of the review of the 2012 Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan, Council is asking for feedback from local residents and the community.
We would like to hear your opinion on what would be the best way to manage flooding into the future and have developed a questionnaire for this purpose.
With this information, we can work towards improving the safety of the local community and reducing the impact of flooding on private properties and community facilities.
At a later stage in the Study, you will be invited to attend a community information session where you will be able to review a short-list of flood management options.

Closing date for questionnaires is Friday 3 May.
