Allans Creek Catchment Flood Study

Consultation has concluded

As part of our commitment to managing flood and stormwater in our region, we’re updating the Allans Creek Flood Study. The updated Study explains the ways flooding happens in the Allans Creek catchment, located in Mount Keira, West Wollongong, Figtree, Mount Kembla, Unanderra, Farmborough Heights and Berkeley.

We’ll be sharing the report with the community during the public exhibition from 29 July to 26 August 2019. Come along to one of our drop-in community information sessions where the floodplain engineers working on the Study will be available to answer your questions. These are drop-in sessions, so you can come in at any time.

Mid-week Session

Wednesday 7 August 2019, drop in anytime between 4pm – 5:30pm
Figtree Community Hall (oval side), 11 Princes Highway, Figtree

Weekend Session

Saturday 10 August 2019, drop in anytime between 10:30am – 12pm
Berkeley Community Centre, Winnima Way, Berkeley


If you’d like to attend and have accessibility or mobility requirements, or need an interpreter, please contact us to let us know how we can support your attendance.

If you’d like to learn more but are unable to attend a session, the Report will also be available to view at Unanderra and Wollongong Libraries until Monday 26 August 2019, with copies of the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ), feedback forms and reply-paid envelopes available.

Read the FAQ, draft Report and have a look at the Floodplain Risk Management Process diagram to learn more about the Study, how we manage flood risk and what we will use the flood study information for, then share your feedback online with the project team.

Following our conversations with the community, the Allans Creek Flood Study will go to Council for adoption. After that, we can start working on a Floodplain Risk Management Study that looks at what the risks and damages from floods might be, and what we could do to mitigate (reduce) those risks. We’ll again be inviting the community to contribute to that process when the time comes.

Feedback closes on 26 August 2019.
