Municipal Recovery and Resilience Plan

Greater Shepparton City Council has coordinated the development of a Greater Shepparton Municipal Recovery and Resilience Plan, to guide the recovery of the community following the October 2022 flood event.

The October 2022 flood event was the most significant flood event in many decades, and impacted Greater Shepparton in many ways, with the communities of Bunbartha, Kialla, Mooroopna, Murchison, Shepparton, Toolamba and Undera all significantly affected.

This Plan defines the governance arrangements and priorities for our region, while recognising that recovery requires a mix of short, medium and long-term actions.  It also addresses the long term priorities to help our region increase flood resilience.

It is a living document – priority activities will be further developed over the duration of the recovery program, which extends to 30 June 2025.

The Plan aligns to Australian and Victorian legislative and policy frameworks including the National Principles of Disaster Recovery, Victoria’s Preparedness Framework, the State Emergency Management Plan, and A Monitoring and Evaluation Framework for Disaster Recovery.
