Floodplain Risk Management Study

Minnegang Creek Floodplain Risk Management Study

The Minnegang Creek catchment is located approximately 8.5 km south of Wollongong, in the suburb of Lake Heights. The catchment rises from the northern shore of Lake Illawarra to the intersection of Lake Heights Road and Flagstaff Road. This study aims to evaluate management options, which can be implemented within the catchment to mitigate the effects of flooding. The recommendations from this study will form the basis of a Floodplain Risk Management Plan for the Minnegang Creek catchment. The Floodplain Risk Management Study aims to:

  • Provide a description of the flooding problems within the catchment including an assessment of flood damages.
  • Identify potential floodplain management measures to reduce flooding.
  • Assess management measures by considering hydraulic, economic, social and environmental factors.
  • Involve the community affected by flooding in the assessment and decision-making process.
  • Review planning and development controls and develop a Planning and Development Controls Matrix for the Minnegang Creek catchment to form part of Council’s Draft Development Control Plan 54 “Managing Our Flood Risks” (Wollongong Council 2003).
  • Develop a recommended scheme of management options to be used to formulate the Floodplain Risk Management Plan.
