Understanding rebuilding

It’s going to be a bureaucratic nightmare! Like shooting at a target in the dark

Bushfire considerations dominate all other considerations for design and rebuild

The process of rebuilding is expensive, stressful and arduous

Appreciation of requirements for rebuilding planning and permits, including time for actual process from start to finish

Information is available. Take it in steps. Approach authorities and get the answers you need in the order you need

It is going to take much longer to build than expected

Now I know the importance of the Concept Phase

New information about length of build time and the regulation challenges that will need to be met when rebuilding

A lot of detail and time required to rebuild

Planning consultants poor accreditation system in Victoria

Though I am familiar with many planning processes I have made notes about design priorities, the need for sealed buildings to have ventilation options & bushfire shelters for follow up

There are provisions for temporary dwellings

Length of planning process and complexity of planning overlays

Planning permit compliance expenses

How long it may take to rebuild and the importance of taking time over this

Some of the new requirements are relevant and can be improved on existing homes, e.g. fire truck access
