Building Fire Safety Committee
The Building Fire Safety Committee (BFSC) is composed of members of Council’s building team, Country Fire Service (CFS) and Metropolitan Fire Service (MFS) personnel as well as an independent technical expert. This committee inspects existing commercial premises to ensure compliance with the requirements of the Building Code of Australia (BCA) and our Building Fire Safety Policy. Where necessary, the BFSC requires the upgrade of existing buildings.
We provide a limited building inspection service in line with the Building Inspection Policy and the legislated requirements under the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016. These inspections are highlighted on the Decision Notification Form issued with the development approval.
