  • Background

    almost 2 years ago

    Our Bush Fire Prone Map was last reviewed in November 2010. The Bush Fire Prone Map identifies bush fire prone areas, bush fire hazards and associated buffer zones.

    New development on areas identified as bush fire prone is subject to additional development and planning controls. These are outlined in Planning for Bush Fire Protection 2006, and the Building Code of Australia.

    The map is also used by the Rural Fire Service to determine what land is within the 10/50 Vegetation Clearing Entitlement Area. The Entitlement Area is established by applying a buffer around land included on the map. Land within the Entitlement Area may be cleared without seeking approval, subject to certain conditions. For more information on the 10/50 Vegetation Clearing Entitlement Area, please contact the Rural Fire Service.

    We have reviewed the Map, capturing changes in the natural and built environment and an updated Rural Fire Service methodology for assessing bush fire risk.
