Landslide hazard mapping

We are currently reviewing our landslide hazard exposure. The review will inform proposed updates to the landslide hazard overlay map and associated code in the City Plan to improve the city's resilience to natural hazards.

The mapping identifies properties with a potential landslide hazard risk of moderate to very high rating. The landslide hazard overlay code regulates development taking place on land with steep and unstable slopes to help protect residents and their property.

The draft mapping is currently being refined following community consultation conducted in 2020. The proposed City Plan update will be submitted to the State Government for consideration and assessment as part of Stage 3 of the project timeline (refer below), following hazard identification and drafting of the update.

The proposed new mapping will use updated high-resolution photography and topography, as well as consideration of geological and other factors, to give a better representation of landslide risk.

View the draft landslide hazard overlay mapping that was presented to the community in 2020 by clicking on the image below. Please note the draft map below is currently under review and is subject to change. You can subscribe to this page below to receive progress updates.
