The NSW Parliament Select Committee inquiry into this year’s floods has invited community feedback through an online questionnaire that closes on Thursday.

The inquiry has held hearings on six days and has received 59 submissions, including from the Insurance Council of Australia, IAG, Floodplain Management Australia and the Business Council of Co-operative and Mutuals and Northern Rivers Co-operatives Alliance.

The questionnaire asks for input on coordination between various levels of governments, agencies and private sector operators and invites comment on the preparation of the NSW Government to the western Sydney and North Coast floods.

It also seeks feedback on the role, composition and resource allocation of Resilience NSW, the State Emergency Service and other relevant agencies.

The Select Committee, which began its inquiry in April, will report by August 9.

Separately, an independent expert inquiry announced by the State Government is also continuing to examine the flooding catastrophe, looking at issues from preparation through to causes, the response and recovery.
