Land Use Planning in Levee Protected Areas

This consultation has concluded.

The City of Launceston is undertaking a review of how we manage land protected from flooding by our City's levee system.

Low-lying parts of the city which rely on the flood defence system to protect against riverine flooding are known as 'levee protected areas'.

We have recently written to our community members who have been identified as either living, working or owning a property in one of the levee protected areas in Newstead, Invermay and the CBD.

As our understanding of flood risk improves and as the community's appetite for risk changes over time, we are eager to learn how residents and business owners consider and manage their flood risks.

We are also keen to learn whether residents and business owners would like to see things managed differently into the future.

1. Read through the attached documents and links with more information.

3. Don't forget to register your contact details here to be notified of the upcoming information sessions.
