Want a travel permit for Summer property fire preparation?
With the summer fire season imminent, there is a need for owners of properties to prepare for the fire season.
The Victorian Government is allowing us to issue travel exemptions for property owners to attend their property to undertake fire preparedness work.
Please consider that you may be able to visit your property after the 5th of November anyway, as this is the indicative date under the Roadmap to re-opening for Regional and Metro areas to come together under the same rules.
For eligible properties, if you believe you need to prepare your property for the 2021 fire season ahead of this date: an owner of a property, or a nominated representative, will be allowed to travel to their property to undertake fire preparedness work. Otherwise current COVID-19 restrictions still apply.
- Travel can be undertaken from 11 October 2021.
- Travel is permitted for a maximum 72hrs for bushfire preparedness work only.
- Maintenance works outside of the Bushfire Management Overlay are not considered critical.
