Strategic Bushfire Management Plan – comments close 25 June 2019

The SBMPv4 has been developed in consultation with the ACT Bushfire Council, Bushfire Management Plan Committee, land managers within the Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate (including the developers of the latest Regional Fire Management Plan) and Emergency Services Agency staff. In addition to stakeholder consultation, the draft SBMPv4 has also been informed by direct feedback from the community as part of a comprehensive community consultation strategy. To date, more than 82 community members have shared their thoughts, values and expectations of bushfire management.


The statutory consultation period provides the opportunity for the ACT community to review a draft version of the Plan and provide their comments and ideas on the proposed strategies and actions to reduce the bushfire risk to the Territory.

The draft plan is available at www.esa.act.gov.au or www.yoursay.act.gov.au/bushfire-management-plan

The Commissioner welcomes any further feedback you may have at SBMPHaveYourSay@act.gov.au
