The Hon. JOHN AJAKA: On 11 September 2014 the Mr David Shoebridge asked me a question about the 10/50 vegetation clearing entitlement area. I have been provided with the following response by the Minister for Police and Emergency Services:
The NSW Rural Fire Service has advised me:
The 10/50 Vegetation Clearing Entitlement Area includes properties that occur within, and properties that extend 350 metres from, vegetation mapped as bushfire-prone land under section 146 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.
Bushfire-prone land is identified and mapped by councils prior to certification by the Commissioner of the NSW Rural Fire Service.
