Public consultation on flood plan now open
PUBLIC consultation for the Bundaberg Flood Protection Study is now open with the Queensland Government encouraging the local community to participate.
The Bundaberg Flood Protection Study is a vital component of the Queensland Government's commitment to develop a 10-year action plan for flood mitigation works in the Bundaberg region.
The study will build on the previous work undertaken in late 2013 by the Bundaberg Regional Council to identify flood mitigation projects.
The Queensland Government is now engaging with the community to further understand flood behaviour as it works to assess and refine these mitigation measures.
Stage 1 of the independent study is being undertaken by Jacobs and includes review of previous studies and a public consultation period to capture local knowledge about flooding and potential solutions.
This is the first phase of consultation in the development of the 10-year action plan.
The study is due to be completed in July 2016 with public consultation taking place in November.
