You can view floodplain maps and flood levels, where available, as well as floodplain development strategies. The tool is also useful for industry, especially those in the property sector.
The floodplain maps are intended to be used for general interest and as a land use planning guide. The information presented may be important when you are:
- buying a new property
- building a new house
- planning a new subdivision
- developing a personal response plan to minimise the impact of flooding on your property
- purchasing flood insurance
- performing property valuations.
The floodplain mapping displayed in the tool is the defined flood event for land use planning, in most cases the 1 in 100 (or 1%) annual exceedance probability (AEP) flood event (previously referred to as the 100-year annual recurrence interval (ARI) event).
For site-specific flood advice email us at email@example.com.
For information on building controls regarding major river flooding, please contact your local government authority.
The maps should not be used by the public to make decisions during a flood emergency.
