Flood Inquiry Submission
The LGEA on behalf of our members, have made a submission to the NSW Independent Flood Inquiry.
We know that our members often live and work in their local government area and when natural disasters such as the recent floods occur, our members are on the frontline in the recovery process, whilst also dealing with the impacts on a personal level.
After consultation with members, we have identified three common themes which we have addressed in our submission.
- A need for improved coordination across sectors and agencies
- The need for greater engineering expertise within the sector
- Increased resourcing and funding for flood prevention and mitigation.
