Draft Bush Fire Risk Management Plan for Mid-Western Regional Council now on Public Exhibition
The Bush Fire Risk Management Plan for the Mid-Western Regional Council area has recently been reviewed, with a draft now available for community feedback.
This Bush Fire Risk Management Plan is a comprehensive document that maps and describes the level of bush fire risk across the Mid-Western Regional Council area. The plan identifies bush fire issues, identifies assets at risk, assesses the level of risk, and establishes treatment strategies to minimise the risk and who is responsible for carrying out the treatments identified.
Percy Thompson, Chairperson of the Cudgegong Bush Fire Management Committee, said “This is an important document that aims to protect our community and assets”.
“All landholders and residents should take this opportunity to have a look at the plan and provide feedback to ensure it meets the needs of our community for the next five years.” said Mr Thompson.
Cudgegong Bush Fire Management Committee invites residents and landholders in Mid-Western Regional Council to view the Draft Bush Fire Risk Management Plan and make comments by Monday 29 July 2019.
