Stormwater management has been at the forefront of Clare & Gilbert Valleys Council’s elected members recent discussions.

A motion to send the Clare Stormwater Management and Clare Stormwater Implementation plans out for public consultation was passed as a result of these discussions.

The Clare Valley has been subjected to major flooding incidents in the past and although many initiatives have been put in place previously Council believe it is imperative to establish a more permanent solution.

A works implementation plan has been drawn up and grant funding will be sought to assist in budget planning.

Community consultation will first be the first step towards adopting the plan.
