Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan

Bow Bowing Bunbury Curran Creek Strategic FRMSP

Campbelltown City Council adopted a Flood Mitigation Scheme in 1984 which has been jointly funded by the State and Federal Governments and Council on an ongoing basis since that time. Construction of works as part of this scheme has occurred for the past 30 years. In 2014, Council endorsed the final draft of the Bow Bowing Bunbury Curran (BBBC) Creek Catchment Flood Studies, which comprises twelve separate sub catchment flood studies. The present Floodplain Risk Management Study builds upon the 2014 Flood Studies to assess and address flood risk to people and assets within the study area.

Campbelltown City Council is responsible for local planning and land management in the BBBC Creek Catchment, including the management of the flood prone land. The overall purpose of this study is to find practical, affordable and acceptable measures to manage the impacts of flooding on people, property and the environment. The BBBC FRMS&P has the following major objectives:

  • To summarise flood behaviour in the catchment, drawing upon the most up to date flood studies;
  • To identify problem areas and areas that will require further detailed FRMSP
  • To assess potential flood damages in the study area;
  • To preliminarily identify and evaluate potential works, measures and restrictions aimed at reducing the social, environmental and economic impacts of flooding, addressing existing, future and continuing flood risk, over the full range of potential flood events and taking into account the potential impacts of climate change;
  • To develop an initial strategic plan to manage existing, future and continuing flood risk, ensuring that the Strategic FRMP is integrated with Council’s existing corporate, business and strategic plans, existing and proposed planning proposals, meets Council’s obligations under the Local Government Act, 1993, and has the support of the local community
