Floodplain Risk Management Guidelines

The risk management guidelines provide extra support for councils to prepare and implement floodplain risk management plans.

Resources in the Floodplain Risk Management Guidelines complement the Floodplain Development Manual and provide extra support to councils when they are creating and carrying out floodplain risk management plans.

The series includes guidelines on many aspects of managing floodplain risk, and associated templates and spreadsheets.

For more information on technical issues, contact your local OEH office or the Environment Line on 131 555.
