Kensington Centennial Park Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan

Consultation has concluded

Randwick City Council is responsible for identifying and managing flooding to reduce the risk of flooding on people and properties.

A Flood Study was completed in 2013 to describe the extent of flooding in the Kensington Centennial Park catchment. It has been revised to include changes within the catchment associated with the light rail development. The model has also been revised using the rainfall patterns and intensities from the new rainfall data standard.

The draft Kensington Centennial Park Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan (FRMS&P) incorporates these changes and has been prepared to evaluate the management options available to reduce the impacts of flooding.

Managing flooding requires a partnership approach between affected property owners and Council. To assist, Council has determined a series of actions outlined in the plan.

To have your say on the draft plan:

  • view the draft plan
  • locate your property on the flood affected area maps - North and South
  • make an online submission or ask a question below
  • visit our drop-in session on Wednesday 5 September, 6-8pm at Kensington Park Community Centre, 1 Day Lane, Kensington.

The plan is on public exhibition from 20 August to 17 September 2018.
