Have questions about annual brush clearance requirements?
You may have recently received a Defensible Space Annual Notice (formerly known as the Brush Clearance Annual Notice) from the Los Angeles County Fire Department (LACoFD). Some homeowners on the Palos Verdes Peninsula are receiving this notice for the first time due to updated mapping software.
In collaboration with the LACoFD, the four cities of the Peninsula have prepared a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) with additional information and clarification regarding the current requirements for annual brush clearance.
