Regional Floodplain Management Strategy - have your say

The draft Goulburn Broken Regional Floodplain Management Strategy is now out for public comment and feedback.

Development of the draft strategy was co-ordinated by the Goulburn Broken CMA in partnership with the eight local councils in the catchment, Traditional Owners and other agencies with floodplain management functions such as water authorities and the VicSES. Community input from a series of public sessions held earlier this year has also been incorporated into the draft strategy.

The draft strategy focuses on:

  • improving community resilience;
  • managing flood risks; and
  • protecting the environmental and cultural values of floodplains.  

Community access to shared flood information has been identified in the strategy as a major priority to help people prepare for living on a floodplain. The actions to do this will be delivered through four broad program themes: Flood Mitigation, Total Flood Warning Systems, Land-use Planning and Municipal Flood Emergency Plans.

We want your feedback

We would like your comments on the draft strategy, which covers Campaspe, Moira, Benalla, Mansfield, Murrindini, Mitchell, Strathbogie and Greater Shepparton council areas.
