Backyard burning off is not permitted in the Town. It is a fire hazard in summer periods and the smoke can cause a considerable nuisance to nearby neighbours.
To report a problem
To report burning off/backyard fires in fire season (between November and April), please contact the fire brigade on 000 and advise the Rangers by calling 9311 8111 as this is highly dangerous in hot weather.
At other times of the year please call Customer Service on 9311 8111 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact details and the address of the property of concern. Your request will be allocated to an Environmental Health Officer for follow-up.
