Consultation for Flood Mitigation Options in North Wagga – Update from Council General Manager Peter Thompson
Following representations by the North Wagga Residents Association, Council will delay the public consultation process in relation to flood mitigation options in North Wagga pending the outcome of the Peer review of the 2018 Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan.
The Floodplain Risk Management Advisory Committee recently resolved to commission an independent peer review of the North Wagga component of the overall Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan. The review will look at the process surrounding the risk assessment strategy and consultation processes for all flood mitigation options proposed for North Wagga and will extend to the methodology used to select the mitigation options for further investigation and conformance to Office of Environment and Heritage processes, procedures and guidelines.
A Request for Quote will be advertised shortly seeking submissions from independent consultants to undertake this peer review. This process will take some months to complete.
As a result, responses to the flyer sent out from Woolcott Research and Engagement recently will not be required at this time.
