Peninsula flooding to be studied
Flooding on the Peninsula will be studied to determine the best way to address it.
Central Coast Council is expected to spend $240,000 on the study, and has received $160,000 towards the cost from the State Government.
The outcome of the study will be known as the Woy Woy Catchments Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan.
"This planning must be undertaken prior to funding applications for works," Council staff told the July 23 Council meeting.
"The Woy Woy Peninsula is prone to flooding in both short and long duration rainfall events," it said.
"Flooding occurs in both road reserves and on numerous residential properties throughout the Peninsula."
