Proposed Bushfire Hazard Overlay Mapping

The State government has released updated Bushfire Hazard Mapping for the Gympie region that overrides Council’s adopted Bushfire Hazard Overlay Mapping in the Planning Scheme. The latest State Government bushfire information, including new hazard categories, is being adopted by Council as part of proposed Amendment Package 2 to the Planning Scheme with intention of improving transparency in the Planning Scheme.
Under the current Planning Scheme, approximately 20, 033 properties were impacted by the Bushfire Hazard Overlay. Under the latest mapping, 8103 of these properties have been removed entirely, with only 11, 930 properties now impacted by the Bushfire Hazard Overlay Mapping.
