Building in Flood Prone Areas

Council's Development Control Plan (DCP) 2012 Chapter 2B Floodplain Management  covers the building requirements for flood prone land within the Shire.

Minimum fill and floor heights to Australian Height Datum (AHD) apply to certain parts of the Shire including both rural and urban areas.

These minimum levels can be obtained from the Building Services section. However, Council will not give existing benchmark or property heights for your particular property. To obtain these you must engage a land surveyor.

All proposed on-site wastewater irrigation fields in non-sewered areas associated with a particular development are to be located within the required filled area.
