Outback

Status:   Draft – Open for public comment 

The Draft Outback BMAP comprises three parts (all available within the online map):

  1. A PDF document Draft Bushfire Management Area Plan - Outback outlines the planning process, regional context and other relevant information
  2. An interactive web-based map identifies assets and their risk levels, and includes pop-up tables of information for each asset
  3. Asset and Treatment Registers contain lists of all BMAP assets, their risk rating and activities to help mitigate the risks.

Latest Update:

Included in the online map (link above) is the draft written document that provides an overview of the region as well as a summary of the risk assessment methodology and key points or areas of concern for the Outback Bushfire Management Committee.

This is the first BMAP that includes the risk assessment for environmental assets at risk from bushfire under the new methodology developed by the Ecological Technical Reference Group (a Working Group of the State Bushfire Coordination Committee).

As part of the development of this BMAP communities across the Outback have been assessed for their suitability as Bushfire Safer Places. As a result 14 potential Bushfire Safer Places have been identified.  Strategic fire breaks and tracks around communities in the APY Lands have also been reviewed and can be viewed on the online map.

The Draft Outback BMAP is open for comment until Monday 8th July 2019. Send your written submission to:

Email: CFS.BushfireManagementPlanning@sa.gov.au
Post:

CFS Bushfire Management Planning Unit
PO Box 2468

For Frequently Asked Questions

All submissions will be reviewed by the Outback Bushfire Management Committee and responses provided.
The BMAP will then be provided to the State Bushfire Coordination Committee for consideration for final approval. If approved the BMC will commence work on implementing actions identified in the BMAP.
