The upgrades to the Cumberland High School will deliver new flexible classrooms including specialist spaces for woodwork and visual arts spaces, a new multipurpose hall, sports and performance spaces, a new library, multipurpose play courts, canteen, and refurbished staff and administration areas.

The TTW Flood Management team prepared a TUflow hydraulic model and flood impact assessment of the site for development scenario including PMF and 1% AEP Afflux and flood hazard maps. The Flood Impact Assessment is required as there is a major overland flow path passing from east to west, bisecting the site. This included modelling the surrounding roads for emergency access.

The impact assessment also included a cumulative impact assessment that reviewed previous developments such as the kiss and ride link road, car park and four games courts, to avoid significant adverse impacts on surrounding properties.
