Important Notice - General Approval to Burn and Other Pile Burning Approvals

Alert issued 20/10/2017 11:41am

Wollondilly Shire residents are reminded that the Bush Fire Danger Period commences on 1 October 2017 and will remain in force until 31 March 2018 or unless otherwise directed by the Rural Fire Service.  Previous approvals issued by Council are suspended during the Bush Fire Danger Period.

A  Fire Permit issued by the Rural Fire Service will be required for any backyard and pile burning during this Bush Fire Danger Period until further notice.

Before ANY burning can take place during this period the property owner needs to contact Council for advice.   If appropriate, a General Notice issued in accordance with the Protection of the Environment Operations (Clean Air) Regulation 2010 will be issued as a first step.  The issue of this notice does not allow you to burn.   You must then make application to the NSW Rural Fire Service, Picton Office to obtain an Approval to Burn prior to the commencement of the burn.  During this period inspections of the proposed pile burn will be carried out by the RFS. 

WHAT TO DO:

STEP 1:  Contact Council and make application for Pile Burn.

STEP 2:  Application determined

STEP 3:  If approved a General Notice will be issued.  (This does not allow you to burn)

STEP 4:  Make application and provide a copy of the General Notice to your local Brigade Captain with your application. (If contact details are not known for the local RFS Captain, then call the RFS District Office, during normal business hours on 46777000 for further information. )

Residents should also be aware that unapproved burning could lead to heavy fines for the property owner. For further information contact Council on 4677 9628.
