Hawkesbury Nepean Floodplain Management Strategy - Road Evacuation Route Upgrade Strategy - Local Hydraulics Specification Study - Windsor Rd and McGraths Hill Alt Routes

Egan National Valuers have been retained by the NSW Department of Land & Water Conservation to carry out a valuation study of the impact that existing and proposed planning controls and notifications have had or, may possibly have, upon property values. The area of study is within the area covered by the report "Achieving a Hawkesbury Nepean Floodplain Management Strategy", (the Strategy Report), which was completed in November 1997.

The conclusions reached in this valuation report assist in the implementation of the recommendations in the Strategy Report. The Strategy seeks to achieve best practice regional floodplain management and increased awareness in the community in relation to the flood hazard. As such, the community including decision-makers will be better prepared to cope with the possible flooding threats as detailed in the Floodplain Management Strategy.

The possible affect upon property values is raised as a platform of concern for those people affected by changes in planning controls and notification of flood related policies. This report seeks to establish if a link exists between such notifications and property values and if so, quantify the level of affect upon property values in the short, medium and long term.

This report seeks to establish the importance that such notifications and planning controls have in the matrix of factors that influence property values.
