Contact us for a quote to do your BMO report
If your property is in a Bushfire Management Overlay area you will need to have prepared a
Bushfire Management Statement to meet the objectives, requirements and standards of
clauses 44.06 and 53.02 of the Victorian Planning Provisions.
We can undertake your BMO site and Vegetation assessment and
address all three Application Requirements of cl. 44.06 being:
A Bushfire Hazard Site Assessment
A Bushfire Hazard Landscape Assessment
A Bushfire Management Statement (BMS)
and also include:
A Bushfire Management Plan (BMP)
An application must demonstrate, amongst other things, that all fire protection requirements for:
"Defendable Space & Vegetation Management"
have been considered and incorporated.
In undertaking an assessment in accordance with the Victorian Planning Provisions
it is important to establish if you can meet your "defendable space" requirments on your own land.
All written reports will include photos and be suitable for lodging with your Planning Permit.
Note: The BAL rating sets minimum standards for design and construction.
However we would always recommend that you should
endeavor to comply with higher levels of protection.
Ember protection should always be a priority.
