Lake Macquarie residents are calling for council policy on sea level measures to be reconsidered.
10, 000 properties would be affected under plans to document properties as sites of potential flooding, affecting property prices and insurance.

Residents met last night to voice concerns for property prices and their rights as owners under the measures that would affect properties as being sites of potential flooding.

Councillor Ken Paxinos says council needs to reconsider policy to reflect community needs.

“Residents in water front low-lying areas, their lives are being impacted by the policies of council to date council hasn’t acknowledged that,” he said.
