FMA NSW/ACT Meeting Roundup
3rd December 2018
FMA once again returned to the Bureau of Meteorology in Sydney for the NSW/ACT Chapter Meeting on the 22 November.
Over 65 flood risk professionals and industry representatives from around the state packed the room to discuss the latest news in all things flood-related.
The Meeting provided informative updates from the FMA Executive, NSW Office of Environment and Heritage, NSW State Emergency Service, Bureau of Meteorology, ACT Conference Hosts and State Emergency Service, and Manly Hydraulics Laboratory.
The interactive afternoon workshop Review of the 2007 NSW Flood Prone Land Planning Circular and Ministerial Directionengaged all attendees in thought-provoking discussion and insight.
The Workshop, led by Melanie Schwecke and Santina Camroux (Department of Planning and Environment) and Duncan McLuckie (Office of Environment and Heritage), looked to gather the views of FMA Members on the current Direction and the associated Circular and Guideline, how they relate to the Floodplain Development Manual, and what improvements are needed.
If you were unable to attend, details from the Workshop will be provided in Members’ Section soon.
