Bushfire and My Development

Land in the Shire of Collie may be identified as ‘bushfire prone’. Where your property is located within a bushfire prone area, there will be additional steps to follow when you develop your property. 

State Planning Policy 3.7 ‘Planning in Bushfire Prone Areas’ (SPP 3.7) and the associated ‘Guidelines for Planning in Bushfire Prone Areas’ direct how land use should address bushfire risk management in Western Australia.

Is My Property Bushfire Prone?

To find out if your property is bushfire prone, view the Bushfire Prone Area Map via the DFES website.

If your property is highlighted pink on the map, it’s ‘bushfire prone’.
Visit the DFES website.
