Lord Howe Island Draft Bush Fire Risk Management Plan

Your comments are invited on the Lord Howe Island Draft Bush Fire Risk Management Plan, now on public exhibition at the LHI Museum and LHI Board Administration office.

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 Lord Howe Island BFRMP, has recently been reviewed. Lord Howe Island Bush Fire Management Committee invites the people of the Island to view the Draft Bush Fire Risk Management Plan and make comments by Monday, 25 June 2018.

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.

These treatment strategies may directly affect you and your property.

The Draft BFRMP is on display at the following locations:

  • Lord Howe Island Museum
  • Lord Howe Island Board Administration Office
