Western Downs Regional Council Planning Scheme Review: Riverine Flood Studies

When the Draft 2013 Regional Flood Study was first presented to Council, after it was peer-reviewed and amended accordingly, it was based on the best available science and data at the time.

In response to community concerns, Council established the Technical Review Panel and gave them the task of reaching a consensus on the fundamental science underpinning the Study. Pre-eminent practitioners in the field of hydrological and hydraulic research were identified and engaged to perform the technical review.

The Panel was independently facilitated by David Murray from CDM Smith. Its membership of independent and qualified experts included Professor James Ball, Associate Professor, University of Technology Sydney, Dr Bill Weeks, Director (Hydraulics), Department of Transport and Main Roads Queensland, and Dr Ian Brodie, Senior Lecturer, University of Southern Queensland.
