Flood Advice Certificate

A Flood Advice Certificate provides a Flood Planning level for land that is subject to riverine flooding. The Flood Planning level is reported in metres to Australian Height Datum (AHD) and is generally used as the standard for determining appropriate floor levels for buildings to provide reasonable protection from flood waters.

The Flood Advice Certificate also contains information in relation to the land levels associated with the property for which it is prepared. This information is sourced from Council's mapping system and as such the height details are approximate only. You will be required to arrange a survey by a registered surveyor to determine accurate ground levels of your land.

To apply for a Flood Advice Certificate, please complete an Application for Certificate / Documents  and submit to Council by:
