Flood maps and data

Predictive Flood Inundation – Existing Conditions

The provided maps do not infer that a property is subject to total inundation from a defined flood event and are not fit for insurance eligibility determination purposes. These maps are also not suitable for the purpose of self-assessment as to whether a home on the property is immune to flooding and do not account for pre-existing localised drainage problems.

Flood modelling exercises have been commissioned to identify areas that are likely to be affected by a level of flood inundation in individual catchments for an extreme event defined as the 1% AEP flood event. These studies are a refinement of the Flood Inundation Overlay Flood Maps used in the Local Planning Scheme. These detailed studies identified localised flooding issues (including low-lying areas and overland flow paths) and assist with strategic planning exercises to develop local flood mitigation measures to reduce the impacts of flooding within the catchment.

  • Information to assist with determining habitable floor levels.

To request a flood search download the Land Record Search Request Form and submit it to Council or complete a request form online.

Payments methods currently accepted are EFTPOS, cash, credit card, cheque over-the-counter and by cheque only externally.
