The NSW Government supports sustainable and hazard-resilient communities through smart land use planning.
To support this, the department has developed the draft Natural Hazards package. This gives communities the tools to prepare for, manage and recover from extreme events – potentially saving lives and property.
The exhibition period for the draft Natural Hazards package has closed. We thank everyone who shared their feedback as we consider all submissions.
The Natural Hazards package includes:
The guide informs the preparation of regional, district and local strategic plans, planning proposals and other strategic planning activities, and:
The guide is supported by a toolkit of resources to help plan-making authorities find relevant natural hazard data, risk management information, other guidance, case studies, standards and tools.
The proposed Natural Hazards package was exhibited from 28 April 2021 until 8 June 2021.
We are now considering all feedback and finalising the Natural Hazards package.
