Institute supports council’s flood reporting project

The Institute was pleased to support the Mackay Regional Council’s funding application for the roll out and semi-automation of a new flood planning report tool.

The project would replace the online “Q100 Flood level” request that the development industry use to establish a new building’s minimum habitable floor level. The existing process can be slow and confusing to the general public.

Council has applied for grant funding from Department of Communities, Disability Services and Seniors, FNQ & NQ Monsoon Trough Category C Flexible Funding Grants Program to initiate this program.

We will update you on the success of the application.

The branch continues to work with Mackay Regional Council to deliver positive outcomes for the community. Any questions, please contact the branch via
