Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith announced that Penrith City Council has received two NSW Government grants totalling $537,000 to help protect Penrith from flood risks.

The NSW Government’s Floodplain Management grant program provides funding to councils to help manage local flood risks.

“This funding helps reduce the impacts of flooding on our community," said Stuart Ayres.

“We want to help council protect residents and their properties from the impact of flooding.”

Penrith City Council propose to undertake a detailed local overland flow study for the Emu Plains locality and continue the Nepean River floodplain risk management study and plan.

These projects are two of 51 to share in more than $7 million as part of this round of Floodplain Management grants funding.

This grant program supports councils, which hold the important role of managing their communities flood risk, to undertake priority projects to assess the risks and provide increased levels of flood protection in NSW.
