UDIA NSW Submission on the 2022 NSW Flood Inquiry

UDIA welcomes this opportunity to comment on the NSW Independent Flood Inquiry announced by the NSW Government in March 2022.

UDIA maintains that the current NSW flood planning framework provides an appropriate risk-based approach to the assessment of flood risk in NSW, and we are supportive of its continued operation in NSW.

The submission further recommends improvements to the coordination and prioritisation of flood infrastructure and mitigation measures, consolidation of flood data and improving State Emergency Service (SES) capacity to provide consistent and timely advice under the planning system.
