Office closure

The State Government has announced reforms for building in bushfire-prone areas of Western Australia. 

 The Department of Fire and Emergency Services has prepared a map which identifies the bushfire-prone areas across the State.  A bushfire hazard assessment will be required for new homes in areas identified as bushfire-prone on the map. 

The assessment will determine the level of construction standards for bushfire resistance to be applied, as identified in the Building Code of Australia and the Australian Standards AS3959.
