City of Newcastle is committed to building flood resilient communities. We have recently engaged a specialist in flood models and floodplain management to carry out an updated flood study for the Throsby, Styx and Cottage Creek catchments (see below map).
Updating this study will help us to plan and manage existing and future flood risks in this area.
Have your say in this important study by sharing your knowledge and stories of any flood related issues you've personally experienced in these areas. Have your say by 5pm friday 2 July.
