Planning for bushfire protection 2018 - NSW

May 07, 2019

In 2018, the New South Wales Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) prepared a pre-release version of Planning for Bushfire Protection 2018 (PBP18). The intent of the pre-release version was to facilitate a transition period between the current requirements of the 2006 Planning for Bushfire Protection and the new PBP18. The NSW RFS initially intended to release PBP18 concurrently with the 2019 edition of the National Construction Code. However, the NSW RFS has recently announced that due to a range of complexities associated with PBP18, its release has been delayed and is anticipated to be finalised in September 2019.

If you are developing within New South Wales, the requirements for PBP18 is something to be aware of as it may affect building/planning approvals and what needs to be referenced on plans.
