Bushfire assessment/management

Bushfire Management Statements (BMS) and Bushfire Management Plans (BMP) are generally required to be undertaken as part of the Planning Process when building on land that has a Wildfire Management Overlay (WMO) or Bushfire Management Overlay (BMO).  These assessments determine the likely bushfire threat to a parcel of land, and CFA access and water issues which then feed into the design process.

At Carter Perspective we undertake your assessment and use this information to determine:

  • the best options for siting your building,
  • options for establishing and maintaining a defendable space around your proposed building,
  • determine the Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) construction type as per AS3959 Building in Bushfire Prone Areas,
  • water and access requirements for CFA.

Price for this service start at $660 each (BMS or BMP) for single dwelling in the local area or $1100 for both.

If your site is not in a WMO or BMO but still in a designated Bushfire Prone Area, we also undertake a Bushfire Assessment during the design phase to determine BAL level for your proposed building.
