Proposing a vulnerable land use in a bushfire-prone area

WA BAL Report specialise in conducting Bushfire Attack Level Assessments and Bushfire Attack Level Reports. At WA BAL Report, we get queries from people wishing to propose a vulnerable land use in a bushfire-prone area. We can provide assistance and conduct the required assessments where you are applying for development of a vulnerable land use in a bushfire-prone area.

The State Planning Policy (SPP) 3.7 applies to vulnerable land uses. Vulnerable land uses are those that are considered to have occupants with a lesser capacity to respond to bushfires and may present evacuation challenges. This includes hospitals, nursing homes, retirement villages, tourist accommodation including camping grounds and eco-tourism, childcare centres, educational establishments, places of worship and corrective institutions. Places of assembly, retail and office premises may also be included, as well as subsidiary uses of residential development including family day care centres or home businesses, and essential infrastructure including energy, transport, telecommunications and other utilities.

Under SPP 3.7, proposals for vulnerable land use are required to be assessed against the bushfire protection criteria and must be covered by a Bushfire Management Plan, which includes an emergency evacuation plan for residents. The purpose of this measure is to recognise that such sites located in bushfire-prone areas require special consideration to ensure that bushfire risk management is sufficiently addressed in the planning stage. WA BAL Report are experts at preparing Bushfire Management Plans.
