Narromine Shire Council engaged consultants to undertake a review of the Narromine Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan which was prepared for the township in 2009.The purpose of the review was to assist Council in refining strategic plans for mitigating and managing the effects of existing flood risk (associated with existing development on flood prone land), future flood risk (associated with any new development on flood prone land) and continuing flood risk (the risk remaining in both existing and future development areas after floodplain risk management measures are implemented).
A Feasibility Study is underway. It is anticipated that community consultation and engagement is to commence in August 2023.
