The BMO specifies objectives and corresponding design measures in clause 44.06.

The BMO requires a proposed subdivision to:  

  • meet the requirements in clause 53.02 - refer below 
  • meet permit conditions for construction, defendable space, water supply and access 
  • meet the mandatory permit condition relating to new lots. All subdivision permits in residential zones require a section 173 agreement for new lots that specifies the bushfire protection measures for each new lot on their individual plans 
  • be referred to the relevant fire authority - see clause 66.03.

Note: a schedule to the BMO, or another control, may include different permit exemptions, additional or substitute bushfire protection measures, decision guidelines, referral exemptions and permit conditions.
