A DRAFT document aimed at minimising the risk of potential bush fires across the Hastings is now on exhibition.
Members of the public are invited to view the document and offer feedback before June 3.
Chairperson of the Mid Coast Bush Fire Management Committee, Matthew Bailey, said the draft plan will focus on strategies to protect communities and assets from bush fire threat.
“Everyone should take the opportunity to have a look at the plan to ensure that their views are addressed.,” Mr Bailey said.
Comments are invited on the Mid Coast Draft Bush Fire Risk Management Plan on exhibition at Port Macquarie-Hastings Council.
A Bush Fire Risk Management Plan (BFRMP) is a comprehensive document that maps and describes the level of bush fire risk across an area and the proposed treatments to minimise and mitigate the risk.
The Mid Coast BFRMP has recently been reviewed.
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.
Written submissions on the draft BFRMP can be sent to the BFMC Executive Officer by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Mid Coast Bush Fire Management Committee, PO Box 327, Taree, NSW 2430 by June 3.
