More Coffs properties are now flood prone


MANY more Coffs Harbour residents will find their properties officially recognised as flood prone if the city council adopts its draft Coffs Creek Floodplain Risk Management Study.

Among a large number of measures recommended in the study is a change in the way floodprone properties are assessed.

Properties within the probable maximum flood (PMF) zone, which covers a larger area than the currently used 100-year flood zone, would have a flood notation attached to 149 certificates, which are issued to vendors when they are going to sell their homes.

Councillor David Featherstone said the new standard could affect 1464 properties.

The draft study will soon be exhibited for public comment for a period of eight weeks.
