Fire Prevention - Block Slashing

 With a wet Winter behind us, now is the time for property owners to start thinking about cutting back tall grasses and weeds on their property.

 As of the 19th of September Council staff will, leading up to the commencement of the Fire Danger Season on 15 November, be conducting property inspections within the Council area to ensure compliance with the Fire & Emergency Services Act 2005. 

Now is the time to begin planning to slash, mow or engage a contractor to ensure your property has all grasses, weeds, pest lands and other growth reduced to a maximum height of 100mm for  properties within townships.

Or

If your property is located adjoining the township, you may be required to establish a fuel break cleared of all flammable material to a distance of at least four (4) metres.

This is required to be maintained throughout the Fire Danger Season.  So bear in mind you may need to attend to the control more than once.
