“Landuse Planning looks at undertaking appropriate landuse assessments by considering subdivision and development compatibility with potential flood risks. This will limit impacts on communities from the outset and reduce the need for future expensive retrofit projects. Simple examples are given for both new subdivisions and development sited on flood prone or flood liable land incorporating evacuation routes during extreme flood event.”
