On 10 September 2019 the Bushfire Prone Area Map for Victoria was updated, including parts of Ballarat, Bass Coast, Baw Baw, Cardinia, Casey, Golden Plains, Greater Geelong, Hume, Latrobe, Macedon Ranges, Melton, Mitchell, South Gippsland, Surf Coast, Warrnambool, Wellington, Whittlesea, Wodonga, and Wyndham municipalities.
Planning permit applications for specified uses and developments within Bushfire Prone Areas require a response to bushfire risk, in accordance with Clause 13.02-1S, even where those properties are not within a Bushfire Management Overlay.
Should you have undecided planning permit applications with Council or in preparation for lodging within these municipalities, it would be prudent to check whether the changes affect your land, by either including or removing your site from the requirement to provide a bushfire risk assessment.
