        • Subdivisions

        • Whenever a boundary is altered (made smaller or changed) in a residential or rural residential area planning controls for subdivision is required (if two or more existing lots are consolidated this is not considered a subdivision).

        • Rezoning Reports

        • Bushfire Assessments are prepared as part of a rezoning in a bushfire prone area.

        • Infill Development

        • An Infill Development involves new house, alterations and additions in pre-existing subdivisions.

        • Special Fire Protection Purpose Developments

        • Any proposals involving schools, hospitals, bed and breakfast accommodation, eco-tourism, housing for older people, retirement villages, childcare centres, music festivals are considered particularly vulnerable during bushfires and are therefore required to meet some specific requirements. In particular, an emergency/evacuation plan is considered an important component of the strategy to plan for any bushfire risk. The consent authority is the local council but only after the RFS has issued a BUSHFIRE SAFETY AUTHORITY.

        • Complying Development

        • Check your 149 certificate to see if you need a Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) risk assessment.

Recent Project: 

Grasmere Place - Grasmere


This property was zoned RU1 Rural Landscape under the current Camden Local Environment Plan, and was proposed to be rezoned to R5 – Large Lot Residential. Indicative house lot layouts were identified in the assessment and it showed how the proposal can comply with bushfire protection requirements. Final details of landscaping and boundaries will be determined when a subdivision DA is lodged.

The assessment recommended that:

  • APZ setbacks be required as a condition for consent. Camden Council, The consent authority, were required to ensure that a mechanism was established to ensure the setback was enforced.
  • Water, electricity and gas were to comply with Section 4.1.3 of PBP (2006).
  • Landscaping was to be undertaken in accordance with Appendix 5 of PBP (2006) and managed and maintained in perpetuity.
  • Standard of access was to comply with standards for PBP (2006) 4.1.3.
