Permit to Burn

How do I know if I am eligible for a permit to burn?

There may be circumstances whereby Council will issue a permit to burn to landowners that cannot comply with the general open air burning regulations. Council gives due regard to the following factors when assessing permit applications:

  • The size of the land 
  • That the land is in a designated bushfire risk area 
  • That the burn off is strictly for fire prevention purposes only 
  • The ability of the landowner to remove the vegetation via more appropriate methods 
  • The proximity to neighbouring assets and property and any smoke nuisance

The cost of a permit to burn application is $138 which is non-refundable. Please allow up to 10 business days for your application to be processed.
