Bushfire Prone Land

Bushfire prone land is an area of land that can support a bushfire or is likely to be subject to bushfire attack. A property is bush fire prone if it is wholly or partly located in the red, orange or yellow area on the NSW Planning Portal

If your property is located within a red, orange or yellow area on the bushfire prone land map, bushfire protection measures are likely to be needed when designing a development. Council must also take into account the bushfire risk in the assessment of a development application or bushfire certificate application for that land.

Special building setbacks, landscaping and construction requirements may apply. This will depend on the type of development, the degree of bush fire hazard and the distance from the hazard.
