Fire Break Information

Rangers pay particular attention to the maintenance of firebreaks and endeavour to inspect them all prior to the fire season. Infringement notices will be issued where landowners do not comply with regulations.

Owners and occupiers are required to clear and maintain their property during the specified fire danger period, from 1 October to 31 March (please note this date has changed) .

Specific details are issued with rates notices or can be obtained from the Shire Administration Building on Windich Street.
