Our Services

Catherine Gorrie and the Team provide a full range of bushfire services to suit your needs whether you are adding a deck or a granny flat or preparing a large subdivision application. We are there from start to finish and can provide preliminary design advice through to signing off the bushfire protection measures for the completed development.

Bush Fire Attack Level (BAL) Certificate

A BAL certificate certifies that a development is not in the Flame Zone or BAL 40. A BAL Certificate is a legislative requirement if you are carrying out Complying Development on bushfire prone land. It must be prepared by a suitably qualified consultant in bush fire risk assessment (or the Council). Our BAL Certificates also state the BAL we determined for your development.

Our BAL Certificate satisfies the State Environmental Planning Policy Code (2008) Part 1 Division 2 Clause 1.19A (1) (a) the development will not be carried out on any part of the lot that is bush fire attack level-40 (BAL 40) or in the flame zone (BAL FZ), and (b) in the case of development specified for the Rural Housing Code, —any associated access way to the development must be on land that is—(i) not in bush fire attack level-40 (BAL-40) or the flame zone (BAL-FZ), or (ii) grasslands.
There are other parts of this Code relating to bushfire which still have to be met, and these are all covered in our Bush Fire Assessment Report.
