Strategic Bushfire Management Plan - Current Bushfire Prone AreasThe BPA map is a single risk-based map that defines the area of the ACT that has been assessed as being at high risk to life and property due to bushfires. Canberra’s built-up areas that are adjacent to forest and grassland are defined as BPAs, as is the ACT’s entire rural area. Identifying the at-risk areas on the BPA map has two principal purposes: It requires assessment to determine mandatory construction standards for buildings under the Australian Standards AS 3959 – Construction of buildings in bushfire prone areas. Concurrent with the development of the SBMP, the ACT Government is considering arrangements to extend BPAs (for the purposes of AS 3959 assessments) to include part of the built-up area of CanberraIt provides the means by which people in the community can assess their personal level of risk and provide the basis for targeted The BPA map will be reviewed as required to reflect changes in land use and tenure, and will be approved by the Commissioner.
