The Hovells Creek and Avalon Catchment Flood Study is nearing completion with draft results now available.

Community consultation sessions were held in September 2018 and March 2019, the community contributed valuable information which helped support the study teams understanding of the local flooding conditions. New updated flood mapping is now available. This mapping will be relied upon for emergency management response, and will be used to inform future amendments to the planning scheme and local development controls. 

The study results help build on our understanding of flooding behaviour in the Hovells Creek and Avalon catchments, informing how far and how deep flood waters are likely to extend during extreme weather events. Continuously updating flood modelling and the City’s management plan is essential to ensure the safety and resilience of the Lara community.

The study team would like to invite community members to view and discuss the study findings and flood maps at community consultation drop in sessions on Tuesday 22 October.

The draft mapping results can be viewed from this link and project update is attached below for your information.
