Draft Bushfire Risk Management Plan

Comments sought on the draft Mosman – North Sydney – Willoughby Bush Fire Risk Management Plan

The Mosman – North Sydney – Willoughby Bush Fire Management Committee (BFMC) is currently seeking comments on its recently revised Bush Fire Risk Management Plan (BFRMP).

A BFRMP is a comprehensive document that maps and describes the level of bush fire risk across an area and the proposed treatments to minimise and mitigate the risk. 

The draft BFRMP identifies bush fire issues and assets at risk. It also assesses the level of risk assets are exposed to and establishes treatment strategies that minimise the risk over time.

The plan specifies who is responsible for carrying out the mitigation treatments within specific timeframes. These treatment strategies may have implications for properties adjoining Council’s bushland reserve interface and as such input from affected residents is being sought. 

The draft BFMRP applies to all land in the Mosman – North Sydney – Willoughby Local Government Areas including private land.

The draft BFRMP will be on exhibition for a period of 42 days from Friday 19 May 2017 until Friday 30 June 2017.
