Jerilderie Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan

The Jerilderie Floodplain Risk Management Study has been undertaken to provide the Jerilderie Shire Council and other stakeholders with a Floodplain Risk Management Plan which clearly defines flooding risks at Jerilderie and identifies preferred options for implementation to reduce future flood risks and associated damages. The FRMP will also assist Council and other government agencies to make appropriate decisions in relation to future land use planning. The extent of the area for which this FRMP applies encompasses the township of Jerilderie and the immediate surrounds. The FRMP takes into account flooding risks associated with both Billabong Creek and Wangamong Creek.

Objectives - The floodplain development controls are intended to:

  • Guide the development of flood prone land, applying balanced strategies to economically, socially and environmentally manage the potential flood risk to life and property.
  • Ensure that sufficient land is set aside to convey and/or store floodwaters and to protect and enhance the riparian zone.
  • Ensure that development, when considered both individually and in the context of cumulative development trends, will not cause unreasonable adverse flooding impacts in other locations.
