Fire Management Plans set out management strategies for fire hazards and risks within a bushfire prone area. Fire Management Plans may include the results of a bushfire hazard level assessment and/or a bushfire attack level (BAL) assessment for a particular area. Fire Management Plans may also impose safety requirements not covered by the Bush Fires Act 1954, such as hazard separation zone, strategic access firebreaks on public and private property, fire fighting water supply (including standpipes and tanks), fire fighting access reservations and easements as well as ongoing maintenance responsibilities.
Information sheets relating to the State Government’s bushfire risk management framework and the State Map of Bushfire Prone Areas can be viewed on our Planning Information Sheets page.
Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) also have publications which may be of assistance available on their Bushfire Publications Page.
