Review of Township Boundaries

The introduction of the Environment Protection (Air Quality) Policy 2016 (‘the Policy’) has highlighted that Council may need to review ‘township boundaries’, as Council may wish to provide greater compliance regarding air quality matters, such as with solid fuel heaters.

Section 5 (1) of the Policy states that a person must not cause or permit the burning of matter by fire in the open on any land within a council area.

Section 5 (2) qualifies this statement by further describing that subclause (1) does not prevent a person from carrying out the following burning activities within a township boundary, such as

1) lighting or maintaining a fire using charcoal, dry wood or other dry plant material for the purpose of preparing food or beverages;

2) burning charcoal (but not wood or other plant material) in a brazier, chiminea or fire pit for domestic heating;

3) burning agriculture or forestry waste, burning off vegetation for fire prevention or control, or burning vegetation for any other purpose, outside a fire danger season, provided that—

         a)the burning activity is carried out in accordance with a burning permit issued by Council; and

         b) the person complies with any mandatory measures of a prescribed burning code of practice that apply in relation to the burning activity; and

         c) the person has regard to any recommended measures of a prescribed burning code of practice that apply in relation to the burning activity.

Note: The Environment Protection (Air Quality) Policy 2016 does not apply to the following activities, among other contained within the Policy, namely:

1) burning undertaken in accordance with a permit or other authority issued under the Fire and Emergency Services Act 2005 or as otherwise authorised by or under that Act; or

2)burning for the purposes of fuel load reduction or other fire prevention or control purposes as required or authorised by or under the Fire and Emergency Services Act 2005; or

The attached proposals are published for community feedback concerning the adjustment of township boundaries to take account of built development since township boundaries were last established.

Consultation period from May 10th to Friday June 30th 2017.

Maps of proposed tonship boundaries are below, the proposed boundary is in yellow, the current boundary in red.
