A Flood Risk Management Plan (Plan) allows forward planning of flood prone land with these steps:

  • Identify and assess options to reduce flood risk
  • Social, economic and environmental assessment of options
  • Ranking options
  • Recommend options for the Plan
  • Adopt the Plan
  • Apply for funding from Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) for implementation.

The elected Council of City of Newcastle adopted two Plans to implement flood risk management options in Newcastle.
