Land valuations have been reviewed for flood-affected properties in the areas that received annual valuations in 2013. All properties that were flood-affected for the first time have been reassessed. Where the impacts of flooding had already been recorded, statutory valuations reflect those impacts.
A detailed review of valuations for flood-affected local government areas that were not valued in 2013 is being undertaken for the 2014 valuation program. This includes Bundaberg Regional Council, and the North and South Burnett regional councils. Properties will be inspected and the latest aerial photography and satellite imagery used to accurately determine the extent of flooding and establish new flood lines.
