If you are considering building or doing renovations which will require council consent, and the property is within a bushfire prone area, all work must now comply with the Australian Standard: 3959 Construction of Buildings in Bushfire Prone Areas (AS:3959) in order for your development application to be approved. As a result a Bushfire Assessment maybe required as part of the submission.
A Bushfire Prone areas is considered anywhere that will support a bushfire, or is likely to be subject to bushfire attack. This is particularly common in areas which may be located in close proximity to bushfire hazards such as forests or grasslands.
To find out if you live in a bushfire prone area you will need to consult your local council (specifically their Bush Fire Prone Land Map). This will also be noted on a Section 149 Certificate for your property, attainable from your Council.
