Check if your development impacts floodplain management

If your property is in a Special Building Overlay (SBO), there is a risk the development could affect floodplains. The works could obstruct a flow path or change existing surface levels.

To determine whether your works impact floodplain management, do either of the following:

  • Contact Melbourne Water and query whether the works will obstruct the flowpath of flood water. Request a response in writing, or
  • Refer to your plans to see whether the works involve any activities that will make the ground higher or lower, for example excavating the property or depositing filling soil. If you are unsure, consult a Land Surveyor.
