Environmental assessment for flood risk reduction

We’re working to reduce existing flood risks and support future development in the Hidden Valley area. To support this work and to find the right solution, we’re undertaking an environmental assessment. This study is part of our secondary planning process. Future development in the area will follow both the current Hidden Valley Land Use Master Plan and our ongoing secondary planning process.
