Clause 53.02 Bushfire Planning works alongside the BMO. It sets out specific subdivision bushfire protection objectives and design measures that applications must meet including: 

  • landscape and site hazard assessments
  • building siting, design and ability to withstand bushfire attack (BAL)
  • defendable space and vegetation management requirements
  • on-site water supply
  • emergency services vehicle access
  • perimeter roads (if applicable)
  • management of landscaping and public open space.

If you’re in a BMO schedule, it may specify other or additional measures.
