An approved well-designed flood refuge mound can provide critical temporary refuge for livestock, but may not be suitable for all livestock or properties. 

This Primefact can help local councils to assess Development Application (DA) for a flood refuge mound for livestock.

The guideline can also help applicants, developers and consultants to design effective flood refuge mounds.  

The issues and checklist are relevant to small and large rural holdings on coastal floodplains.
