Bushfire Management Statement

Eco Vision Australia understands the management of native vegetation and the associated management of bushfire risk. 

Our qualified Environmental Land Management Consultants will ensure that bushfire risk management is integrated into all land management considerations and fulfills legislative requirements.  Our services include:

  • Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) assessment for building
  • Bushfire Management Statements (BMS) as required under a Bushfire Management Overlay (BMO) for building and subdividing

Our integrated approach to bushfire assessment ensures that the bushfire risk management is not considered in isolation and takes into consideration other environmental land management and legislative objectives.

Our comprehensive assessment process involves the following steps:

  • a desktop review of relevant information
  • site assessment of bushfire risk and other relevant information to help best inform site layout
  • collaboration on site design once we have clearly determined the values and relevant legislative requirements to ensure the proposal manages bushfire risk appropriately and other considerations such as minimising ecological impacts
  • report detailing:
  1. locality and site description: including discussion of fire risk, fuel hazard, landscape context, topography, access and infrastructure
  2. how the proposal responds to the relevant planning requirements and site conditions
  3. the required BAL rating (AS3959-2009 Standard) for proposed building(s)
  4. relevant requirements relating to water supply, access, vegetation management and any other relevant matters
To ensure we maintain a high level of professional service in undertaking Bushfire Management assessments our Environment Land Management Consultants undertake regular and relevant training. They remain up to date with the current legislation and requirements and update their knowledge through attendance at relevant training programs including Preparing and Assessing a Bushfire Management Statement, conducted by the Department of Planning and Community Development (DPCD) .
