Living with flooding is a part of life in Ipswich and as a community we need to be informed, ready and resilient.
We are developing the Ipswich Integrated Catchment Plan as part of our ongoing commitment to understanding and preparing for flood - but we need your input.
Past major flood events have shown the human and social costs of flooding can be just as significant as the more tangible costs of building and infrastructure damage.
We value everyone's thoughts and opinions.
Phase 2: Targeted engagement with 10 suburbs
During phase 1 we received 190 survey responses from people in 51 Ipswich suburbs. That work was important to discover community understanding of flood and priorities for future actions.
Phase 2 is further engagement with 10 key suburbs to provide detailed community insight that we need to develop the Ipswich Integrated Catchment Plan.
These suburbs were selected by overlaying several factors such as the risk posed by flood water and Census data vulnerability indicators such as mobility and awareness.
If you live in one of these 10 suburbs we want to hear from you! A short survey is below that takes 5-10 minutes to complete.
Brassall – Bundamba – East Ipswich – Gailes – Goodna – Ipswich CBD – Karalee – North Booval – One Mile – Rosewood.
