Preparing for storms and flooding
Council understands that people's personal safety and property are of the highest concern during a severe weather event. This section looks at preparing your home and family, developing your Be FloodWise Household Kit, insuring your house and contents and accessing and understanding flood warnings.
A flood can be life threatening to you, your staff and customers. Damage caused to your business through flooding can be devastating and it may take several weeks or months for your business to return to normal trading. You can minimise your risk of flood damage by developing a Be FloodWise Business Plan.
Council has a Temporary Local Planning Instrument (TLPI 01/12) that applies to land affected by the January 2011 Brisbane River flooding, as well as by waterway or creek flooding. Find out about the TLPI planning provisions and areas covered by the interim flood standards and how this might impact on building, renovation and/or development.
Use the 'report a maintenance issue' section of our online forms and services to report a flooding hazard/maintenance issue to Council.
