Last Chance to Have Say on Flood Study

Somerset residents have until Thursday, 14 September to share their views about flood management.

Residents are invited to share their views about increasing public awareness and responsiveness to flood risk and the types of options residents would like considered.

Somerset Regional Council, together with other local governments, has been working with the Queensland government on a long-term plan to manage the impact of floods and improve community safety and resilience within the Brisbane River Catchment.

Residents can have their say by completing a short online survey. The views of residents will be used to inform options being developed for the draft Strategic Floodplain Management Plan.
