    Hi guys,

    Looking for some help defining this term: "Waterway Corridors and Wetlands Overlay", and if a property is located in this area, how concerned should I be?

    This property doesn't lie in a Flood Hazard Overlay, however pretty darn close.


    Cheers,

    Taku

    I believe you are talking about Brissie...if the probability is less than 0.1% of flooding or even 1% with flood insure you should be ok. Horses for courses I suppose...

    Hey @sash
    Yep, talking about Brissie. Do councils give a probability percentage of an area flooding??

    Yes...Moreton Bay does...others advise on the flood envelope. Just look on the council website...pretty good.
