One of the key findings of a survey conducted among Murwillumbah residents last year was that very few people understand the flood risk in central Murwillumbah or would respond quickly to an order to evacuate – or evacuate at all.
A number of South Murwillumbah businesses devastated by the 2017 flood have put their hand up to move their operations to flood-free land, as the result of a $3 million land swap arrangement funded by the NSW Government.

A more effective response to the recent flood disaster could have been made for Byron shire, according to officials who met this week.
