Overview and contact information for bushfire planning reform

Information about the bushfire planning reforms and who to contact.


The State Government has announced a package of reforms to help protect lives and property against the threat of bushfires throughout Western Australia.  

Reforms have been introduced setting out new requirements for people intending to develop and/or build in bushfire prone areas, including the need to assess a property’s bushfire risk and take additional construction measures to limit the impact of bushfires.

Information provided here can help you understand how these changes may affect you and any development you may be considering. 

They provide important information on the land use planning requirements if you are planning to develop in a designated bushfire prone area within Western Australia. These designated areas are identified on the map of bush fire prone areas.

A summary for local governments has been prepared.
