A Bushfire Management Plan (BMP) is a plan which identifies the extent of the bushfire hazard to a development. A BMP sets out short, medium and long term bushfire risk management strategies for a particular area.
This Bushfire Management Plan is used to support planning proposals and development applications in bushfire prone areas. It considers things such as fire breaks, fire fighting water supply, fire fighting access, easements and ongoing risk management responsibilities.
A BMP can be undertaken by an accredited Level 2 or Level 3 Bushfire Planning Practitioner, which is why at Bushfire Smart we make sure that we use accredited assessors, so you can have a reliable Bushfire Management Plan.
