Your report will be structured to assist your local Council development assessment officer and the Rural Fire Service to assess your development. There are a number of bush fire protection measures that can be incorporated into a proposed development to minimise the bush fire impact on life and property.
The six bush fire protection measures that are addressed in Planning for Bush Fire Protection 2019 include:
- Asset Protection Zones
- Building construction, siting and design
- Access arrangements
- Water supply and utilities
- Emergency management arrangements
Your report is tailor made and developed in conjunction with a comprehensive site inspection. We use the latest aerial and contour mapping for our Geographic Information System (GIS). Wherever possible we suggest ways to reduce the BAL, for example, relocating the position of a development on the land to increase a setback from the hazard.
