Floodplain Development Manual: the management of flood liable land 2001

This manual is superseded by the NSW Floodplain Development Manual 2005 (https://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/-/media/OEH/Corporate-Site/Documents/Water/Floodplains/floodplain-development-manual.pdf)

This manual, prepared in accordance with the NSW Government's Flood Prone Land Policy, is concerned with the management of the consequences of flooding as they relate to the human occupation of the floodplain for both urban development and agricultural production. It addresses flood risk in full recognition that management decisions taken in respect of the human occupation of the floodplain need to satisfy the social and economic needs of the community as well as being compatible with the maintenance or enhancement of the natural ecosystems that the floodplain sustains.
