Neighbourhood Safer Places (NSP’s) – Places of Last Resort
(NSP's) are places of last resort, to provide shelter during the passage of a fire, when all other plans have failed. They should not be considered as places to relocate to when leaving early.

Safety and survival cannot be guaranteed at neighbourhood safer places and there are no proposals to offer support or services. They will offer the minimum protection against radiant heat and embers. Road hazards, prevailing conditions and driving to NSP's may pose a significant risk that must be considered within your planning.

At Council's meeting on 19th January 2010 Council adopted its Neighbourhood Safer Places Plan. This plan was amended on 20 July 2010 to further clarify aspects of the approval process. Download

Council has received advice from CFA that a number of NSP's proposed within Mansfield Shire will comply with the CFA criteria for vegetation separation requirements. Two (2) NSPs were designated during 2010 and an additional 11 sites (see detailed listing below) were designated by Council mid 2011 until December 2014. Please note Neighbourhood Safer Places (NSP's) are places of last resort, to provide shelter during the passage of a fire, when all other plans have failed. Most up-to date information on NSPs is available for Mansfield and the whole State via the link to the CFA web page: www.saferplaces.cfa.vic.gov.au/cfa/search/default.htm

Council has also prepared a Neighbourhood Safer Places brochure that is available at the Council office - 33 Highett Street, Mansfield, or via the following link.
