This advisory group is the first formal step in the floodplain risk management process.
They act as both a focus and forum for the discussion of technical, social, environmental, cultural and economic issues during the development of flood studies and flood risk management plans. Its membership consists of representatives from Council (elected representatives and staff), relevant government agencies including Office of Environment and Heritage, National Parks and Wildlife Service NSW, Sydney Water and the State Emergency Service, as well as representatives from the local community.
Council’s Floodplain Risk Management Committee (established in 2015) is currently overseeing implementation of the floodplain risk management process for sub-catchments in the LGA, in partnership with the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage.
There are currently 6 community representatives on the committee in addition to Chair Deputy Mayor Barbara Ward and Deputy Chair Councillor Greg Taylor. Community representatives for each term are nominated following the Council elections.
Meetings of the Committee are held as required. Meeting agendas and minutes are published on Council's website.
