Clarence Fire Management Strategy

This bushfire management strategy is a revision and expansion of Clarence City Council's existing bushfire management strategy. The aim of this revision is to ensure that Clarence City Council's bushfire management practices are based on current best practice for protecting life and property from bushfires, and provide for the long-term sustainability of ecological diversity in reserves managed by Council.

Clarence City Council is currently reviewing its Bushfire Management Strategy for Council managed land. The 2016-2021 Bushfire Management Strategy will be available here late 2016. In the meantime the 2011-2016 Clarence City Council Bushfire Management Strategy and associated Bushfire Management Plans can be found here.. 

The bushfire management strategy identifies all of Clarence City Council's statutory bushfire management responsibilities, sets overall objectives and a policy framework, and outlines the practices, procedures and actions required to meet them. It also includes general information on bushfire management, details of the bushfire risk assessment process used in the reserve bushfire management plans, including assumptions, methods and data sources, and a glossary of key terms.
