Floodplain Risk Management Committee - Community Members

Call for Expressions of Interest (EOI)

Wollondilly Shire Council is seeking additional community representatives to fill vacancies on Council’s Floodplain Risk Management Committee. The Floodplain Risk Management Committee provides advice to Council through the Floodplain Risk Management process in accordance with the NSW Governments Flood Prone Land Policy and Floodplain Development Manual.

The community members provide an important voice on the Committee that includes representatives from State Government Agencies, Councillors and Council Staff.

A total of 10 community member positions are part of the committee structure and this EOI is seeking to fill up to three vacancies that currently exist. We are seeking applicants that identify with three broad focus areas to encourage representation from a range of perspectives:

• Business/Industry focus
• Environmental focus
• Local Community focus

Stonequarry Creek and the Picton town centre are the current focus of the Committee, however, other floodplains are likely to follow and knowledge of other areas will also be beneficial.

Expressions of Interest close 4pm, Friday 10 August 2018
