Draft Planning for Bushfire Risk Management Guidelines

Closed 1 Aug 2014

Opened 4 Jul 2014



The Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) recently released draft State Planning Policy 3.7: Planning for Bushfire Risk Management and the revised supporting Guidelines for public comment. To help in finalising the draft documents, this e-survey is proposed to ascertain community and stakeholder views regarding bushfire management measures proposed in the draft policy documents. This e-survey will be offered as an alternative to the existing submission form on the revised Guidelines only, due to existing consultation timeframes.

The bushfire policy documents can be accessed from: www.planning.wa.gov.au/bushfire.
