2009 VICTORIAN BUSHFIRES ROYAL COMMISSION

The Bushfires Royal Commission Final Report includes 67 recommendations under various headings.
 
The recommendations canvass a wide range of issues and are indicative of the breadth of analysis completed by the Commissioners. It is interesting that 19 of the recommendations deal with Planning and Building issues. They range from amendments to the Victoria Planning Provisions to the more controversial acquisition of land by the State in unacceptably high bushfire risk areas. If fully implemented, the recommendations will have a significant impact for land use planning in the State.
