Floodplain Risk Management Plan

Boggabilla Floodplain Risk Management Plan

The general area of Boggabilla is located within the Border Rivers catchment on the Macintyre River floodplain. The town itself lies at the intersection of the Newell Highway and the Bruxner Highway, 110 km north-east of Moree, straddling the Queensland and New South Wales border.

The purpose of the Plan is to provide Council with a range of strategic and statutory planning management measures for addressing the risks associated with flooding in Boggabilla, with the objective of minimising financial and personal loss in the event of flooding. This document aims to:

  • Recommend a coordinated mix of management measures that address existing, future and continuing flood risk within the Boggabilla township;
  • Establish a program for implementation and funding for the management plan including priorities, staging, funding, responsibilities, constraints and monitoring;
  • Propose modifications to existing Council policies to ensure that the future development of flood affected land is undertaken so as to be compatible with the flood risk;
  • Be consistent with local emergency management planning;
  • Ensure actions arising out of the management plan are sustainable in social, environmental, cultural and economic terms;
  • Be supported by the local community;
  • Meet Council’s obligations under Section 733 of the Local Government Act 1993.
