|Response to major flooding across New South Wales in 2022||2.98 MB|
The terms of reference for the inquiry were referred to the committee by the Legislative Council on 23 March 2022.
Being aware that many flood affected people still had limited access to services including electricity and telecommunications at the time of the inquiry, the committee put in place additional lines of communication to engage with flood affected communities. This included establishing a mobile-friendly online questionnaire, and a series of public forums in flood affected areas. The committee also sought to engage early in the inquiry process with elected representatives living and working in flood affected regions, in order to identify issues of key concern to local communities and to foster engagement with local community networks.
The committee received 87 submissions, 4 supplementary submissions and 119 responses from individual participants to an online questionnaire.
