Recommendation(s):

That the Council receive this presentation about a review of stormwater regulations considering impacts of climate change and provide feedback on next steps proposed by staff.

 

Key Issues:

                     The State limits local government stormwater regulations.

                     Climate change is affecting conversations about and approaches to stormwater management across the region and industry.

                     Staff seek Council feedback on the proposed scope of analysis for the stormwater regulation review and support funding for a technical study.
