Flood Resilience Action Plan

In February 2022, Brisbane experienced a severe weather event which caused significant river and creek flooding, and overland flow. The event caused more widespread damage than had been seen in previous events of a similar nature, with 795 millimetres of total rainfall falling over five days and impacting 91% of Brisbane suburbs.

Brisbane City Council has been working with the local community to identify and repair the widespread damage and provide support to those who need it most. In addition to Council assets and services, many Brisbane residents have also been adversely affected, and Council remains committed to them and to all residents to rebuild a better and more resilient Brisbane.

Apart from the flood damage itself, the city’s speed of recovery will be influenced by the unique and never-before-seen economic and societal impacts from the coronavirus pandemic.

Recognising these priorities and challenges, Council has prepared the Rebuild & Recover: Flood Resilience Action Plan to ensure Brisbane is more resilient by building back better. Council’s efforts will focus on rebuilding and recovering as soon as possible, to get the city back on its feet and ready to embrace the opportunities of the next decade.
