Manningham Council, in partnership with Melbourne Water, has recently completed a review to provide a more accurate model of the impact of flooding across the municipality.
Following this review, Manningham Council decided to change the flooding overlays within the Manningham Planning Scheme, which will affect a variety of properties in the City.
Manningham Chief Executive Officer Joe Carbone said that the review has provided Council with more accurate mapping information on the extent of flooding across the municipality.
“The flood mapping will assist Council in prioritising initiatives to reduce flood risk to our community and pursuing opportunities for drainage upgrades.
“Amendment C109 does not change the risk of flooding to properties in Manningham, however it will allow Council to better manage the risk through the implementation of the new and revised flooding overlays,” he said.
The proposed Amendment C109 is on public exhibition until Thursday 24 December and can be inspected at the:
Manningham Civic Centre, 699 Doncaster Road, Doncaster during office hours
Doncaster, The Pines, Bulleen, Warrandyte and Box Hill branch libraries
Online at www.yoursaymanningham.com.au
The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning website, www.dtpli.vic.gov.au/publicinspection
Those affected by the amendment and other interested people may make a written submission for Council to consider prior to making a decision to adopt Amendment C109 and submit it to the Minister for Planning for approval.
Submissions must be made in writing and can be accepted online at www.yoursaymanningham.com.au or by mail to:
