Environmental Defenders Office (EDO) welcomes the opportunity to make a submission to the
NSW Independent Flood Inquiry (Inquiry).

As a community legal centre specialising in public interest environmental and planning law, EDO’s
submission addresses the Inquiry’s terms of reference (ToR) that relate to environmental and
planning law.

The submission also makes reference to our Climate-ready planning laws for NSW report, which is a comprehensive analysis of current and proposal for future NSW planning laws to respond to the current and evolving threat of climate change, including increasing unprecedented flooding and attendant impacts.
