Stage 2 of Roma Flood Mitigation Project Gets OK

More properties in Roma will be better protected from flooding with approval granted for Stage 2 of the Roma Flood Mitigation Project, the Queensland Government said in its latest release.

Acting Premier and Minister for Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning, Jackie Trad, approved the development application following a comprehensive reassessment.

The Acting Premier called in the development application on 24 October following requests from Maranoa Regional Council.

“In the end, community safety was at the center of the final decision, with paramount importance placed on the protection of lives,” Ms Trad said.

“The Maranoa Regional Council recognizes that Stage 2 of the development will have a positive effect on the Roma community in minimizing the repeated impact of flooding.

“This is a lifesaving measure and will mean the flood levee will protect around 30 additional properties from above floor flooding.”

Ms Trad said that her department did a thorough and detailed reassessment of the application which included consultation with council and members of the community for further advice and comment before a final decision was made.

Stage 1 has already been completed by council and this has reduced the above floor flood risk for about 490 properties.
