Successful voluntary house buy back scheme applicants identified

Council has selected the successful applicants in the current round of the Voluntary House Buy Back Scheme.

The scheme provides funding for Council to buy back houses identified in the Kyogle Flood Study as being at risk.

Council hopes to be able to run another round of the voluntary buy back scheme in the latter half of 2022.

Council recently completed the buy back of two properties in Walters Street and will be commencing the purchase of two more houses in Norton Street.

Funding for the Buy Back Scheme is provided through the NSW Department of Planning Industry and Environment under its Floodplain Management Program.
