Asset Protection Zone (APZ)

What is an Asset Protection Zone?

An APZ or Asset Protection Zone is an area that is “low risk” measured from a dwelling to native vegetation within the lot.

The APZ is required to be managed to lower the BAL Rating to an acceptable level. You will get the APZ distance from the bushfire consultant, BAL Report or similar document like a Bushfire Management Plan(BMP).

Establishment and Maintenance

When your Asset Protection Zone (APZ) approved by the Local Government Authority, you will need to modify the vegetation within the APZ to comply with the Schedule 2 Standards for APZ’s to achieve the applicable BAL Rating.
