Initial Consultation with the MFS Built Environment Section (BES)

The following form is to be completed and submitted to the MFS Built Environment Section (BES) prior to or during the initial meeting on a building development proposal on which consultation with the MFS as the relevant fire authority is being sought, generally pursuant to Development Regulation 28.  The intent of this form is to provide a general and broad overview of the project proposal to the BES, from which further discussions can be developed.

Development Regulation 28 Referral for Fire Authority Comment & Report

The following forms are to be completed in full and submitted to the MFS BES along with the relevant project documentation (as identified in the BE001 form) when seeking Relevant Fire Authority Comment and Report pursuant to Development Regulation 28. 

Pursuant to Section 37 of the Development Act, where necessary documentation or information is missing from the Regulation 28 submission or additional information is required in order to assess a Regulation 28 application, a request for information (RFI) will be made by the MFS.  Such RFIs will necessitate an extension of time to the prescribed period within which the Regulation 28 Relevant Fire Authority Comment Report is to be made, for the period of time that the applicant takes to provide such additional documents or information.

The forms have been provided in Microsoft Word format for convenience and to assist in expediting the Regulation 28 process. Once downloaded from this webpage they are no longer controlled documents. The MFS requests that these forms be submitted in Word format but recommends the applicant retain a PDF copy of the final, submitted forms for document control and record keeping purposes. These PDF copies are not required by the MFS for the purposes of completing the Regulation 28 referral process.

Domestic Fire Safety

Due to the evolving situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19) the Metropolitan Fire Service (MFS) has made the difficult decision to cancel all non-emergency community engagements and discontinue taking bookings until further notice.


Our aim is to protect our employees and members of the public (including vulnerable groups) and to protect our ability as an organisation to provide 24/7 emergency response to serve the community.



We look forward to again taking bookings for educational Station Tours, Appliance Visits, Community Events, Road Awareness Program (RAP) Presentations, Career Presentations, Home Fire and Life Safety Presentations and School Holiday Fire Station Tours and members of the community are encouraged to monitor this website and social media sites for updates.


We understand this is disappointing for the community and thank you for your understanding.
