Implementation of Plan Print

Once a management plan has been adopted, it needs to be implemented.

Certain components can be implemented relatively quickly, such as incorporating flood related development controls into policy and EPIs and flood education including public awareness programs. Others require additional investigations and design, and funding.

It is unlikely that any management plan could be implemented immediately in its entirety. For example, availability of funding will determine when mitigation works can commence. Consequently, an implementation strategy is required to stage components dependent on funding availability and the management plan needs to consider adoption of interim measures. The implementation strategy should be developed during the preparation of the management plan and incorporated in the plan.
