We are currently reviewing our landslide hazard maps. The review will inform proposed updates to the landslide hazard overlay map in the City Plan to improve the city's resilience to natural hazards.
The proposed new mapping uses higher resolution photography and topography to give a better representation of landslide risk.
This proposed mapping identifies some properties with a potential landslide hazard risk. Most of these properties are within low density, medium density and rural residential zones.
The landslide hazard overlay code will protect residents and their property by helping to regulate development taking place on land with steep and unstable slopes.
The proposed mapping is being refined following community consultation conducted in 2020. The proposed City Plan update will be submitted to the State government for consideration and assessment later in 2021.
