The Flood Study has been developed by expert consultants, working with MidCoast Council’s Floodplain Management Advisory Committee.

The Committee includes representatives from the community and farming industry, Council’s planners and engineers, NSW Department of Planning Industry and Environment, Biodiversity, Conservation and Science division (BCS); and NSW emergency services and first responders.

The Bulahdelah community provided valuable input into the Study in 2021 via a community survey sent to all property owners.

Bulahdelah residents were invited to provide feedback on the Draft Bulahdelah Flood Study in September 2023.

We will present an updated risk management study, which includes this study for community feedback in 2024.
