Bushfire Risk Assessment

Bushfire is an ever present and potential risk to most rural properties and urban release areas. It is also a potential risk to properties located nearby to stands of vegetation in urban areas.  The Rural Fires Act 1997 requires every Council to have a Bushfire Risk Management Plan in place.  The plan identifies potential bushfire hazards within their Local Government Area which is then used to identify land which requires a Bushfire Risk Assessment to be undertaken as part of any assessment for future buildings and subdivisions.

Resource Design & Management (RDM) provide a comprehensive range of environmental services, including Bushfire Risk Assessments.  We have undertaken numerous assessments for numerous subdivisions, proposed buildings as well as the Coffs Harbour Education Campus and the new Base Hospital.

We are dedicated to practical environmental solutions which are fit for purpose, sustainable and which deliver successful development outcomes to our clients.
