CONSULTING THE COMMUNITY

Exhibition of Draft Flood Policy 2020 and Draft Works in Kind Policy

Hawkesbury City Council has recently prepared the Draft Flood Policy 2020 and the Draft Works in Kind Policy.

The Draft Flood Policy 2020 has been prepared to highlight Council’s position in respect of the need for a collaborative approach across all levels of government to respond to issues associated with floodplain management across the Hawkesbury-Nepean Valley, and to set the information and development controls to be used for the preparation and assessment of Development Applications for land affected by the 1 in 100 year flood event to address the requirements of Clause 6.3 Flood Planning of Hawkesbury Local Environmental Plan 2012.

The Draft Works in Kind Policy has been prepared to establish a framework for Works in Kind Agreements in accordance with the provisions of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.

At its meeting on 11 August 2020, Council resolved to place the abovementioned draft policies on public exhibition.

The draft policies and supporting documentation are on public exhibition for the period Monday, 31 August 2020 to Monday, 28 September 2020.
