The Shire of Toodyay recently commissioned a comprehensive review of its activities relating to the provision of bushfire related infrastructure and related policy.

The resulting report ‘Strategic Review of Bushfire Policy’ was conducted by external consultants with the intention of providing an independent assessment.

At the request of Council this document is now being made public to assist resident’s understanding of the review and its outcomes.

Recommendations of the report are currently being assessed by relevant Officers and Council. 

Enquires relating to the report can be made to the Community Emergency Services Manager on 9574 2258.
