NSW Government's funding program, Increasing Resilience to Climate Change, has put forward $142,000 for a Climate Change Adaptive Landform Case Study at Woy Woy.
This will fund the development of a landform and drainage study for four areas subject to coastal and flood inundation on the Peninsula foreshore.
It was one of the individual master plan studies recommended in the Brisbane Water Flood Risk Management Study and Plan to mitigate flooding impacts.
The study will aim to inform guidelines for Council's Development Control Plan and include piloting different landform and drainage options.
