We are undertaking various flood and stormwater management initiatives, aimed at building a more resilient and liveable Manningham and to facilitate robust planning for the future.

This page provides information relating to the Integrated Water Management Strategy and Manningham Flood Mapping Project.

Integrated Water Management Strategy

The Manningham Flood Mapping Project will inform the development of Manningham Council’s Integrated Water Management Strategy.

This strategy will review flooding and stormwater management risks and respond to emerging challenges, including:

  • population growth
  • development pressure;
  • climate change and associated increasing flood and drought risk.

Integrated Water Management is a collaborative approach to the way we plan for and manage all elements of the water cycle. It considers opportunities to treat stormwater as a resource, rather than a waste for disposal.

The Integrated Water Management Strategy will identify opportunities to reduce reliance on potable water, consider alternative water sources and contribute to planning for a resilient and liveable Manningham.

Manningham Flood Mapping Project

Under Regulation 148 of the Building Regulations 2018, Council is now required to prepare mapping for areas under its control that are liable to flooding.

Planned for completion in 2025, the Manningham Flood Mapping Project is being delivered by Melbourne Water and Manningham Council.

It will provide maps indicating flood extents for the regional and local drainage networks in Manningham, for a range of probable storm events.

Flood mapping involves computer modelling, which simulates how stormwater runoff travels through catchments.

Current and reliable flood mapping information is essential to understand and manage flood risk. It is used to:

  • assess the frequency, severity and location of flood risks within catchments
  • better plan and prioritise mitigation activities
  • plan for future development
  • build community awareness; and
  • inform emergency management planning.

The flood mapping process will also be informed by the latest available data and guidance recommended under the 2019 version of Australian Rainfall and Runoff.

    Together with the community, we want to better understand Manningham’s water and flood management challenges and consider the best ways to address them.

    From Tuesday 3 May, we’re calling for expressions of interest (EOI) from community members to join a Community Reference Panel.

    The panel will help guide the development of the:

    • Manningham Flood Mapping Project
    • Integrated Water Management Strategy


    The Community Reference Panel will help us better understand the increasing flooding and stormwater management challenges facing the community. These challenges relate to climate change, development pressure and population growth.

    Manningham Mayor, Cr Michelle Kleinert, said she is proud Council is engaging with the community and proactively addressing these challenges now.

    Flood mapping will be undertaken in accordance with Regulation 148 of the Building Regulations 2018.

    This information will help us:

    • forecast the likelihood and impact of floods
    • understand flood risk
    • plan mitigation activities


    “It’s essential that we partner with the community to inform our strategic direction and implementation plans. The Community Reference Panel will support quality decision making, best placing us to proactively and sustainably meet the challenges ahead,” she said.

    “We’ve seen recent flood events devastate communities across southern Queensland and northern New South Wales, demonstrating how climate impacts are changing and likely to worsen.

    “We’re committed to engaging with our community and working closely with State agencies, including Melbourne Water, to ensure the long-term sustainability, resilience and liveability of Manningham,” Cr Kleinert said.

    The panel will consist of:

    • an independent facilitator
    • community members
    • Councillors
    • Council officer representatives
    • subject matter experts


    The term of the Community Reference Panel will be a maximum of four years.

    You can register your interest online or pick up an application form from the Manningham Civic Centre.

    The EOI process will close on Friday 27 May 2022.

    Proposed Corrective Planning Scheme Amendment C137mann, Update

    On 28 February 2022, Council received a formal request from Melbourne Water for a planning scheme amendment, to be considered under Section 20(2) of the Planning and Environment Act 1987.

    The purpose of the proposed amendment is to correct Special Building Overlay Schedule 1 (SBO1), as it applies to 39 properties in and around Hillcroft Drive, Templestowe.

    In March, Council officers received a petition from 18 signatories from properties where the SBO1 is proposed to be removed, requesting that Manningham Council accept Melbourne Water’s request. This petition was tabled at the 22 March 2022 Council meeting.

    Officers also met with interested property owners in March to discuss the impacts of the proposed planning scheme amendment for their properties.
