About flood mapping

Council has a range of flood mapping products and flood information available. This enables our Sunshine Coast community and industry professionals to make informed decisions for emergency preparedness and land use planning purposes.

On Thursday 19 August 2021 council updated its flood mapping and information. Changes include:

  • updated data in existing maps
  • new user-friendly maps and information
  • new data made available for the public to inform development applications.

Through this mapping, council is providing information to help landowners and users understand the flood risk which already exists on a property.

The updated flood mapping and information does not create more risk on a property. They simply provide more detailed information for a property owner to understand existing risk.

For the first time it is possible to view and understand the degree of flood risk for individual properties, rather than simply being aware if the property is included or excluded in a flood extent area on the Sunshine Coast.
