Creek Hazard Development Permit Area (DPA)

Through the Creek Hazard DPA, we can:

  • minimize the risk to people and property from creek hazards
  • ensure development and construction near creeks is done safely
  • minimize development in areas with high debris flow/debris flood hazards
  • reduce the impacts of flooding in developed areas
  • avoid increasing floodplain hazards
  • encourage ongoing maintenance and monitoring of creeks
