Bush fire is a major challenge for the community. It has been a natural part of our landscape for thousands of years and remains an ever-present threat. All developments on land that is designated as bush fire prone have a legal obligation to consider bush fire and meet the requirements of Planning for Bush Fire Protection 2019 and AS3959 - 2018.
The NSW Rural Fire Service enables you to check if your land is bush fire prone and provides helpful information if it is.
