The objectives of the Study are to identify and compare various management options, including an assessment of their social, economic and environmental impacts, together with opportunities to enhance the foreshore environments. The primary aim of the Plan is to reduce the flood hazard and risk to people and property in the existing community and to ensure future development is controlled in a manner consistent with the flood hazard and risk at this time and as a result of climate change (sea level rise). This review combines and updates the previous Lake Macquarie Floodplain Risk Management Study (2000 – Reference 1) and Plan (2001 – Reference 2) into one document.
