Interim Flood Prone Land Policy and Flood Studies

Flood Studies

Under the NSW Government’s Flood Prone Land Policy (the "Policy"), the management of flood liable land remains the responsibility of Local Government.

In order to implement the Policy within its local government area (LGA), Strathfield Municipal Council has embarked on a program of flood studies and actions as set out in the NSW Floodplain Development Manual (2005) under the guidance of Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH).

As part of Council’s Floodplain Management Program, Council has completed the following flood studies:

  1. Boundary Creek Flood Study and Floodplain Management Study and Plan 1998
  2. Cooks River and Coxs Creek Flood Study prepared by WMAwater dated October 2010
  3. Powells Creek and Saleyards Creek Flood Study prepared by WMAwater dated November 2016
