Have your say on bushfire risk and prevention strategies in the Limestone Coast.

What is being decided?

The Limestone Coast Bushfire Management Area Plan (BMAP) has been developed through engagement with local councils, CFS volunteers and other stakeholder groups to identify assets at risk from bushfire and determine appropriate treatment works to reduce that risk. A community survey was also circulated in 2015 to capture additional local information. So far the plan captures approximately 600 assets and over 1000 treatments including community engagement, property preparedness and policies

Have your say on bushfire risk and prevention strategies in the Limestone Coast.

What is being decided?

The Limestone Coast Bushfire Management Area Plan (BMAP) has been developed through engagement with local councils, CFS volunteers and other stakeholder groups to identify assets at risk from bushfire and determine appropriate treatment works to reduce that risk. A community survey was also circulated in 2015 to capture additional local information. So far the plan captures approximately 600 assets and over 1000 treatments including community engagement, property preparedness and policies and codes of practice, and we're now asking the community for further input to ensure the plan is comprehensive and captures what the community values.

The Bushfire Management Committee (BMC) is looking for your input on the draft Bushfire Management Area Plan. We want your feedback on what's contained in the Plan, such as the assets at risk from bushfire, and treatment strategies that will be implemented to manage the bushfire risk in the local area.

    The Limestone Coast Bushfire Management Committee (BMC) would like to thank everyone for their comments on the Limestone Coast Bushfire Management Area Plan. The Plan has been approved by the State Bushfire Coordination Committee and the Limestone Coast BMC has begun work on implementation planning, monitoring and reporting.

    Relevant stakeholders are continuing to work on a risk assessment process (to be consistent across all Bushfire Management Areas) to enable the inclusion of environmental assets as assets at risk from bushfire. This does not negate the need to consider the impact on environmental assets when implementing risk treatments in approved BMAPs.

    Any changes to multiple, significant or landscape wide assets or risk treatments may necessitate additional periods of public consultation. The CFS Bushfire Management Planning Unit is maintaining a list of persons/organisations interested in being notified should further opportunities for public consultation arise. If you would like your details added to this list please email: CFS.BushfireManagementPlanning@sa.gov.au or phone (08) 8463 4151.
