Bush Fire Assessment Report

A Bush Fire Assessment Report provides a Bush Fire Attack Level as well as an assessment of the development against the requirements of the Rural Fire Service document, Planning For Bush Fire Protection.It satisfies section 4.14 (s4.14) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 or section 100B of the Rural Fires Act 1997 and can be used for a development application to Council or other Consent Authority. It also satisfies the above in relation to the SEPP Code and can be used for a Complying Development application to a Principal Certifying Authority.

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
  • Landscaping

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.
