On 1 August 2002, the Rural Fires and Environmental Assessment Legislation Amendment Act 2002 (Amendment Act) came into effect.
The Act amends both the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 and the Rural Fires Act 1997 to ensure that people, property and the environment are more fully protected against the dangers that may arise from bushfires.
The Amendment Act requires councils to map bush fire prone land within their local government area, which becomes the basis for planning for bushfire protection.
