Property developers from around EZFKA have announced that they stand by ready to assist with future flooding, by lobbying for more housing in known flood plains.
The move comes as more homes are wiped out in NSW and Queensland due to record flooding in areas that are historicaly reknown for flooding.
“This is a great solution for everybody involved and really encapsulates the true spirit of EZFKA,” Meriton developer Harry Trigaboff said.
“We build the homes in an area known for it, they get destroyed and then we get to build them again. Meanwhile, the plebs get to ask for handouts from the tax payer as relief and the climate change brigade get some attention. It’s a win-win-win for us!”
A proposal for 200,000 more homes in the Hawkesbury region is already before the NSW government with more proposed for the Lismore area as well.
