The State Government has announced a package of reforms to help protect lives and property against the threat of bushfires throughout Western Australia.  

These reforms introduce new requirements for people intending to develop and/or build in bushfire prone areas, including the need to assess a property’s bushfire risk and take additional construction measures to limit the impact of bushfires.

These website pages will help you understand how these changes may affect you and any development you may be considering. 

They provide important information on the land use planning requirements if you are planning to develop in a designated bushfire prone area within Western Australia. These designated areas are identified on the map of bush fire prone areas.

A summary for local governments has been prepared.
