Question and answer
Hw cn we deal with floods in our community
Managing flood risk is generally simpler in new development areas. Preparing a floodplain management plan enables strategic decisions about where, what and how to develop the floodplain while reducing residual flood risk (i.e. [ the risk left after management measures are put in place) to an acceptable level. Local councils can use local planning instruments to influence the long-term development of an area in consideration of flooding, by restricting the location of development (zonings) and placing conditions (controls) on development. Zonings can limit the impacts of new
development on flood behaviour in other areas and the exposure of people and property to risk by locating new development away from areas where: The main floodwaters flow. Development in these areas may alter flood behaviour affecting other properties. Maintaining these flowpaths can also provide green corridors through cities. The speed and depth of water make it hazardous to people, property and infrastructure. ] ]
