Better Flood Planning for Ballarat | | Monday, 01. April 2019

The Ballarat Strategy and Council Plan identify the need for the City of Ballarat to better understand the effects of flooding on properties and introduce appropriate planning controls so that residents and businesses are informed and better equipped to manage flooding when it occurs.
This will help to minimise the impacts of flooding on the community through improved planning and development decisions. The information will also be used to help plan and prioritise infrastructure improvements, flood mitigation and flood emergency management in the future. The Better Flood Planning project will identify and understand the precise nature of flood risks and aspects of flooding behaviour for 11 waterways across the municipality.   The City of Ballarat is currently working with the community and key agencies such as the Corangamite Catchment Management Authority to confirm flood modelling data to inform a Planning Scheme Amendment. The Planning Scheme Amendment will introduce necessary planning controls to improve flood planning and management.
 We are keen to hear from everyone – business owners, shoppers, residents, visitors, students and families – to better understand experiences of flooding in Ballarat and surrounding areas.
The City is pleased to invite all interested community members to our drop-in sessions:
