Ongoing obligations in the BMO

Permits for buildings and works in the Bushfire Management Overlay (BMO) come with ongoing requirements such as the maintenance of a driveway to allow access for fire trucks and maintenance of dedicated water tanks for fire-fighting purposes.

Purchasers of established properties in the BMO should be aware that ongoing obligations tied to a permit for development on the property may exist.

Speak to the local council to obtain more information on any existing planning permits and ongoing requirements.
