Environmental Foundations: foundations of bushfire and native vegetation
May 27 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm$530
Two half day sessions run over the course of one day providing planners and referral authorities with a fundamental understanding of Bushfire and Native Vegetation.
Session 1 Learning Outcomes: Bushfire Foundations
- Understanding the planning policy framework, including State policy at clause 13.02, the Bushfire Management Overlay (BMO) and relevant exemptions for vegetation removal.
- Bushfire behaviour for planners, including vegetation classification and basic fire behaviour.
- How to prepare or assess an application in the BMO (e.g. bushfire hazard landscape assessment, bushfire hazard site assessment and bushfire management statements).
- How to consider bushfire policy for strategic planning proposals.
- Understanding interaction between bushfire policy and related policy considerations (e.g. native vegetation objectives and various exemptions).
Session 2 Learning Outcomes: Native Vegetation Foundations
- Planning policy framework for native vegetation, including the objectives at clause 12.01 and the Guidelines for the removal, destruction and lopping of native vegetation (DELWP, 2017).
- Understanding assessment pathways and application requirements at clause 52.17, clause 52.16 and relevant exemptions.
- Integrating native considerations into the permit application processes, including interaction with other requirements such as the Bushfire Management Overlay (BMO) or Environmental Significance Overlay (ESO).
- How to consider native vegetation policy for strategic planning proposals.
