Planning for stronger, more resilient floodplains 


Summary

Planning for stronger, more resilient floodplains is a two-part Guideline that provides Councils with a suite of practical measures to better align floodplain management and land use planning.

Part 1, Interim measures to support floodplain management in existing planning schemes, provides a ready-made toolkit of floodplain mapping and development assessment controls that can be fast-tracked for inclusion in existing planning schemes.

Part 2, Measures to support floodplain management in existing planning schemes, is a continuation of the journey to improving floodplain management practice in Queensland through land use planning. It provides detailed advice on how to investigate flooding and address its impacts through future Queensland planning schemes by providing step-by-step guidance and example planning scheme provisions.
