NEW Online Burning-off Notification System

As in previous years, only one permit per landholder will be issued and will last for the entire period of the Fire Danger Season. These are be obtained by contacting Council on 8635 2107 as previously. Permits are not available online. Permits must be carried by the permit holder at all times whilst burning, and they must be in attendance of the burn, permits cannot be transferred to other parties. Burning notifications for the 2019 permit season will see the implementation of online burn-off notifications through Council’s website Prior to lighting up each burn off, Permit holders are required to go to the website and validate their permit and provide details of burn off location and time. Location can be entered in as an address or a “pin” can be dropped on the map to mark location. Locations and times are visible for all Emergency Services and Council’s Authorised Officers to view to assist with Fire Season management. Notifications to validate a permit can occur from 5.00pm on the day prior to burn off and on the intended day of burning up to 1.00pm and provide a minimum of two (2) hours notice before starting to burn. Notifications will not be accepted for same day burns after 1.00pm.
