Wingecarribee Shire Council has engaged J. Wyndham Prince to conduct a flood study for the Robertson Village catchment area.


Flood study objectives

The study will address the existing, future and continuing flood problems within Robertson Village, in particular the historical flooding issues in Hoddle Street.


To do this, J. Wyndham Prince will:

  • assess the current flood behaviour in and around the town under existing conditions

  • predict future flood behaviour

  • assess what impacts the proposed changes to land use surrounding the township will have on existing flood conditions


Why is Council undertaking this study?

Council is responsible for local planning and land management in the Robertson Village catchment area including the management of the floodplain and all existing drainage systems.


Council’s planning policies and long term strategies for the area need to factor flooding events to ensure that the risk to people and property is minimised.
