The State Government's free storm and flood clean-up program covers the demolition and removal of any structures on eligible private properties that were destroyed or damaged beyond repair by the June 2021 storms and floods. This could include:

  • residential homes and sheds
  • commercial and public buildings 
  • other outbuildings. 

The program will also remove hazards such as dangerous materials or trees, that pose a threat to property or work crews, as well as any vehicles that were damaged beyond repair. 

This program is voluntary, free of charge and open to eligible property owners.

 Power outages: using alternative fuel and electricity generation safely
 When power outages occur, usually as a result of severe weather events, people sometimes use alternative sources of fuel or electricity generation for cooking, lighting, heating, or power. Portable generators can allow some normal activities to continue, however it is important to use them with extreme caution.
