Coogee Bay Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan

Consultation has concluded

Randwick City Council is responsible for identifying and managing flooding to reduce the risk of flooding on people and properties.

In 2013, we undertook a Flood Study to determine the behaviour and extent of flooding in the Coogee Bay catchment. At that time, we wrote to all property owners and consulted with you to help develop the study.

The next stage in the NSW Government Floodplain Management process is to look at ways we can reduce the impacts of flooding. Accordingly, we have now drafted the Coogee Bay Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan to assess management approaches we can take to reduce the impact of flooding.

Managing flooding requires a partnership approach between affected property owners and Council. To assist, Council has determined a series of actions that is outlined in the plan.

To have your say on the draft plan:

  • view the draft plan and/or the summary map of flood management options investigated
  • locate your property on the flood affected area map
  • make a submission below
  • visit our drop-in session on Thursday 21 July, 6-8pm at that Coogee Legion Club, 200 Arden Street Coogee

The plan is on public exhibition from 8 July to 5 August 2016.

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.
  • I live in Rainbow St in one of the flood prone areas. My question is: how can I respond at this stage? It seems as a resident I can do very little if we have the 100 year flood and/or the main drainage tank blocks. My property is currently well drained, but that won't be of any use if these events described in the Flood Study occur. So again, is there anything I can do to protect my property?

    The flood issue on Rainbow St is very particular. The best way to respond to the flood is to be aware that your property can be flood affected and know how to act in case of an emergency. For example, check the SES floodsafe website (www.floodsafe.com.au) which gives useful information on how to act before, during and after a flood or how to prepare an emergency kit.
