We want your input

The Peach Tree and Lower Surveyors Creeks Catchment Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan is now being prepared, and we are seeking information from people living or doing business in the area. You may have valuable local flood knowledge and personal experience and we are asking you to share this with us. It will help us to create a Flood Plan that is informed by local knowledge and information that would otherwise go unrecorded.

The Peach Tree and Lower Surveyors Creeks catchment study area covers approximately 12 square kilometres across South Penrith, Jamisontown and part of Penrith and is generally bounded by the M4 Motorway in the south and extends to Penrith CBD in the north. The study and plan are being prepared by consultants Catchment Simulation Solutions on Council’s behalf.

Full information about the Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan can be found here
