Bushfire Protection Areas

Bushfire Protection Areas (see http://www.sa.gov.au/topics/property-and-land/land-and-property-development/building-rules-regulations-and-information/about-bushfire-protection-areas) show the spatial extent of the Bushfire Protection provisions brought in under the Ministerial Bushfire Management amendments in 2006 (part 1 and part 2) and 2007 (part 3). The level of bushfire risk is rated as High, Medium, General or Excluded and determines the planning approvals plus requirements under the Australian Building Code and Australian Standard AS 3959 for the construction of dwellings in the defined bushfire risk areas. Some areas have criteria that, if met, change the designated level of bushfire risk. Bushfire Protection Areas exist in the South East Region, Riverland, Kangaroo Island, Mount Lofty Ranges, Mid North, Yorke Peninsula and Eyre Peninsula.
