Pervious land is needed to ease flooding

I refer to Jane Hendy's comment in Peninsula News, June 11, about keeping Memorial Ave land as open space.

Pervious land has significance to ease Peninsula flooding.

It is obvious the council has failed to adequately investigate this area and makes unacceptable decisions.

The Woy Woy Peninsula Flood Study 2010 comments on the limited open pervious ground for water to infiltrate or for vegetation to soak up water.

What area of "open pervious ground" on the Peninsula has been covered with development which will exacerbate future flooding?

There are other reasons for concern listed in the 2010 flood study, such as flat topography, high water table, modified creeks and housing layout.

Have the Peninsula Flood Studies been of any value or have they been produced for the purpose of nominating for local government awards?
