The committee is made up of Councillors, Council Staff from a variety of areas across Council, NSW Government Agencies and Community representatives. The Committee has an advisory role and makes recommendations to Council for its consideration.

New Expressions Of Interest (EOI) for Community Members on the Floodplain Risk Management Committee

Wollondilly Shire Council is seeking community representatives to sit on Council’s Floodplain Risk Management Committee. The Floodplain Risk Management Committee will provide 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 will provide an important voice on the Committee that includes representatives from State Government Agencies, Councillors and Council Staff.
A total of six community members from three broad focus areas is sought to encourage representation from a range of perspectives:

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

While the first floodplain to be studied by the Committee will be Stonequarry Creek and the Picton town centre, other floodplains are likely to follow and knowledge of other areas will also be beneficial.
