Submission to NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment on the updated Flood Prone Land Package
20 Jun 2020
IAG commends the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment on the updated Flood Prone Land Package.
IAG has long been an advocate for improved land use planning as a way of mitigating the risk to life, property and prosperity posed by natural disasters.
The proposed changes to the NSW flood planning framework are an important step towards closer alignment of land use planning with the true underlying flood risk. We believe the flood prone land package will result in improved community resilience which has flow on affects to the affordability of flood insurance for newly developed properties under the new planning regime.
