We want your thoughts on open air burning

Published on 17 January 2023


We have a legislative obligation to review and prepare a new Community Amenity Local Law every 10 years.
It empowers us to respond to local issues and protect public and private space, as well as our community’s health and safety.
In August 2022, Council adopted the Community Amenity Local Law 2022 and committed to reviewing Part 4 of the Local Law separately in early 2023. 

This part of the Local Law deals with open air burning, incinerators and chimneys, and we want to ensure adequate focus is given to such an important topic.
We’re now seeking the community’s feedback to help us consider what’s important to local residents in this space, what emerging issues there are and ensure the Open Air Burning Local Law is relevant.
This is just a first-round consultation to help us develop the new open air burning local law provisions. We’ll then consult with the community again once a draft has been created. 


Community consultation is currently open and closes 5pm 19 February 2023.
