Disaster recovery work

Following natural disasters, such as flood, storm and fire, Landmate crews may be available to provide recovery works to restore the environment.

Allocation and prioritisation of work is organised by the local council or shire, state government (DELWP) co-ordinator or by independent disaster recovery bodies such as Blaze Aid (External link)

Please note that where private landowners have insurance coverage that provides for repair of the damage, Landmate is not able to offer disaster recovery works.

More information is available about disaster recovery works from:

  • DELWP (External link)  
  • Catchment management authorities (CMAs) - see below for individual websites
  • Councils and shires - see below for individual websites.
