Queensland floods commission of inquiry: final report

Source(s):  Queensland Government

This document is the final report of the Commission of Inquiry into the Queensland floods of 2010/2011, established following the flooding of historic proportions in Queensland in December 2010, stretching into January 2011. It embodies both likelihood of flooding
and the consequences of flood when it comes.

The report begins with an examination of floodplain management covering the range of responses to flood risk that the Commission has investigated from its inception to this final report: emergency warnings, preparation, planning and response, dams, levees, and land use planning. The second part of the report details the results of the Commission’s examination of how local and regional planning systems can best minimise the impact of floods, especially the role of building controls through the regulation of design and construction, and the implications of possible changes to the Queensland Development Code to regulate building in flood hazard areas.
