Restricted Burning Season has Commenced

The Restricted Burning Period has commence across the whole of the Shire. This means for all fires lit after this time, a permit needs to be obtained from a Permit Issuing Officer in your Brigade area, or a Ranger within the gazetted town site. Burning without a permit is not allowed and will incur fines. Furthermore, unpermitted fires causing damage will not be covered by insurance.

For further information on burning restrictions, bush fire safety or joining your local bush fire Brigade, please contact Mel Ammon at the Shire office on 9071 0625.
