The Draft Singleton Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan aims to an appropriate mix of management measures and strategies to effectively manage flood risk in accordance with the NSW Government’s Floodplain Development Manual (NSW Government, 2005) and allow for more informed flood risk management and planning decisions within the Singleton township and broader floodplain area.
Council engaged BMT Commercial Australia to prepare the revised Floodplain Risk Management and Study and Plan for the Singleton township and the surrounding villages of Glenridding, Bulga, Camberwell, Jerrys Plains and Branxton.
The plan aims to derive an appropriate mix of management measures and strategies to effectively manage flood risk in accordance with the NSW Government’s Floodplain Development Manual (NSW Government, 2005) and allow for more informed flood risk management and planning decisions within the Singleton township and broader floodplain area.
The Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan, including the Flood Study, is presented in three volumes:
- Volume 1: Flood Study: Documents the data collection and review, hydrologic and hydraulic model development and calibration, and design flood results.
- Volume 2: Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan: Documents the flood risk within the study area, identification and assessment of flood mitigation measures considered for Singleton, leading to recommendations for implementation of preferred measures as part of the Floodplain Risk Management Plan.
- Volume 3: Flood Mapping: Contains all flood mapping prepared as part of this Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan. *Please note due to the size of the document, only a table of contents is available for download. Maps are available in hard copy format at Singleton Council's Administration Building during business hours.
The outcomes of the Flood Study, including the hydrologic and hydraulic models and design flood mapping in Volume 3, will be used to inform an understanding of flood risk under existing catchment and floodplain conditions, identify flood-related issues within the study area, define potential future flood risk considering climate change impacts and future development, and provide a basis for the identification and assessment of appropriate floodplain risk management activities to reduce the flood risk to both property and life.
Council is currently seeking feedback about the draft Singleton Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan. The documents are available for viewing at Council’s Customer Service Centre (Volume 1, 2 and 3) and Singleton Public Library (Volume 1, 2 only) until 31 March 2023.
