Consultation has concluded

The City of Launceston is eager to understand how it may have improved its response to the June 2016 floods.

A deep low pressure system which impacted the Eastern seaboard of the country caused heavy rainfall across Northern Tasmania, and resulted in significant flows in both the North Esk and South Esk Rivers.

This in turn created the most severe flood threat to confront the city in decades.

The closure of flood gates and flooding of roads caused traffic management issues, forced the closure of parks and reserves, and created a high demand for accurate and up-to-date information.

The City of Launceston is now seeking community input and ideas on how it could improve its response in a future flood event, via the accompanying survey.

Thanks in advance for your participation.
