Hilltops Council is seeking feedback from the community on the recently released draft Murrumburrah Flood Study.
The study provides information and analysis of the existing flood risks and Council are seeking feedback detailing further flood risks in the Murrumburrah area. The study covers the Currawong Creek and Cunningham Plains catchments which includes the twin towns of Harden and Murrumburrah along with adjacent rural areas.
The study is the first step in a series of studies under a framework provided by the NSW Government’s Flood Policy. Following the Flood Study will be a Floodplain Management Study. These studies will be used to develop the Floodplain Management Plan, which will then be implemented.
A public consultation will be held at 4.30pm on Tuesday the 22nd of October at the Hilltops Council Harden Chambers. All community members are invited to attend. The Study can be viewed and downloaded at this link https://hilltops.nsw.gov.au/Council/About-the-council/Draft-Polices-Procedures-on-Display.aspx Hard copies are also available to view at Hilltops Council Offices and Libraries in Harden, Boorowa and Young.
Submissions are to be sent to: Locked Bag 5, Young NSW, 2594 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Murrumburrah Flood Study’ in the subject line. Submissions must be received by 12pm on 6 November, 2019.
