Government buys more flood-prone homes

By Tanayah Wakefield

Ten more properties in the Bancroft electorate will be bought through the State Government’s flood buy-back program, taking the total to 27 in the area.

The program was prompted by widespread flooding across the region in 2022 which devastated parts of Rothwell in particular. The same streets were also badly affected by floods in 2015.

State Member for Bancroft Chris Whiting says four of the 10 properties to be bought back are in Major St.

He says applications for the buy-back scheme are closed, and the “process of offer and acceptance is continuing”.
