Glenorchy City Council Bushfire Mitigation Strategy
The strategy will identify Glenorchy City Council's statutory responsibilities around bushfire mitigation, sets overall objectives, outlines the practices, procedures and actions required to meet them. It also includes general information on bushfire mitigation, details of the bushfire risk assessment process used in Bushfire Mitigation Plans, including methods and data sources, and a glossary of key terms.
Tenure blind - Looks at a situation holistically across all land owners/managers. In this context, it means Glenorchy City Council is looking at the potential bushfire risk from fires starting within, entering or leaving Council managed land.
