Bushfire Prone Areas

New State planning policy, State Planning Policy 3.7 Planning in Bushfire Prone Areas (SPP 3.7) was gazetted on Monday 7 December 2015.  SPP 3.7 directs how land use should address bushfire risk management in Western Australia. It applies to all land which has been designated as bushfire prone by the Fire and Emergency Services (FES) Commissioner. Prior to this policy being put in place, Western Australia was faced with catastrophic bushfires, of which badly hit areas Margaret River and Toodyay suffered greatly.
