It has been incredibly helpful as part of our building process and given us options and clarity. After the consideration, we decided to limit our scope to internal renovations to achieve a CDC without a bushfire report. Thank you so much again for your help because without that advice, we would have gone down a longer path which we did not prefer. We definitely will use you and your services again. You are incredibly knowledgeable, professional and all about the customer.

On 4/11/2020 Ryhs wrote: I was of the impression the neighbour on the other side of the gully had an agreement (asset protection zone or fuel management, don't remember the term..) that got him to BAL-29 - what we hoped for. I got in touch with him to ask for some paperwork that I could pass back to you. He said while doing a soil test, some important vegetation was found and the agreement was voided and no trees can be cleared on that block of land. He's proceeding with his build as BAL-FZ, moving his build from ~$400k to ~$600k. Thanks to your team for helping us dodge a bullet that we couldn't see! I hope to be back in touch again at some stage for more advice on a less troublesome piece of land.

Learn from our mistakes and don't even think about the type of house you want until she has been able to assess the block. With her recommendations we were able to obtain a fire rating of less than what we thought was even possible. We are now about to build the home of our dreams in a great location and thanks to her we have saved thousands. Thank you Catherine for all the phone calls, emails and hard work.
