Lord Mayor's message

It’s been six months since Brisbane experienced one of its worst-ever floods. While the majority of Brisbane bounced back quickly, there are parts of our city that have not yet fully recovered.

Our Council team recently announced an additional $1000 rates rebate for home owners whose properties remain uninhabitable.

We’re also working hard to rebuild community facilities that were severely damaged.

Unlike 2011, all of our ferry terminals survived the flood. Work on the eight terminals that remain offline should be completed by early 2023.

Former governor Paul de Jersey’s report into Brisbane’s flood preparedness is being actioned. Additional evacuation centres, alternative sandbag locations and formalising the role of those wonderful community hubs that popped up during the flood are all on our agenda.

We can’t prevent flooding, but we can help ensure Brisbane is better prepared.
