The Risk Model is an approach for local councils to plan for future climate change in an equitable and proactive way. It allows local government to approve developments that are under the maximum benchmarks set by the State Government of 900mm over the present levels while at the same time reduces risks to litigation due to damage of properties from climate change brought by property owners who’s developments are below this maximum standard set by the State Government. (Often a maximum standard set by State Governments become a minimum standard for local government.)
