Severe and ongoing bushfires in Australia have highlighted the importance of planned and controlled development in bushfire prone areas. To maximise safety, the NSW Government has amended legislation and published new guidelines, Planning for Bushfire Protection. This course is designed to provide planning and development professionals, particularly those working in the local government arena, with the necessary skills and understanding to apply the relevant requirements of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, Rural Fires Act 1997 and AS 3333959 (Buildings in Bushfire Prone Areas).
This course covers legislation, planning and design principles, as well as aspects of bushfire behaviour and management, in detail.
Learn about statutory requirements and protection measures, as well as analysing and problem-solving in relation to bushfire protection measures and acceptable solutions. Sessions are designed to build knowledge, provoke discussions and encourage critical thinking.
The course has four intensive workshop days on campus, and one practical field trip. From lectures, through to face-to-face classes and the excursion, you will experience interactive presentations, case studies, scenarios and facilitated workshops.
