Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan

Trundle Floodplain Risk Management Study and Draft Floodplain Risk Management Plan

Parkes Shire Council (Council) is responsible for local planning and land management for Trundle. Council has no formal floodplain risk management strategies in place to provide an appropriate level of protection for the Trundle community. Further, Council needs to update emergency management strategies to effectively manage the continuing flood problems in Trundle. Hence, Council proposes to develop a Floodplain Risk Management Plan for Trundle in phases, in accordance with the NSW Government's (2005) Floodplain Development Manual. Initial investigations (including data collection and review of all relevant data) and a flood study, were prepared in the first phase (Phase 1). A Floodplain Risk Management Study (the Study) and Plan (the Plan) will be developed in the second phase (Phase 2), with the Plan being implemented in the third phase (Phase 3).

Jacobs Group Australia Pty Ltd (formerly Sinclair Knight Merz) was engaged by Council in May 2012 to develop a Floodplain Risk Management Plan for Trundle encompassing all activities in Phase 1 and Phase 2. A report entitled “Trundle Flood Study, October 2014” was produced by as the outcome for Phase 1 of the project. This report details outcomes from Phase 2 of the project. Council needs to develop a Floodplain Risk Management Plan (FRMP) for Trundle, to address the existing, future and continuing flood problems, in accordance with the NSW Floodplain Development Manual (2005). To meet the requirements of the Manual, Council needs a FRMP in order to:

  • Reduce the flood hazard and risk to people and property in the existing community;
  • Provide valuable flood intelligence to assist State Emergency Service (SES) in updating Local Flood Plans for the township;
  • Protect, maintain and, where possible, enhance the river and floodplain environment, and
  • Ensure flood management decisions integrate the social, economic and environmental considerations.
