SECTION 18 – EXTENSION OF RESTRICTED BURNING TIME

 

Pursuant to Section 18, subsection (5B) Bush Fires Act 1954 the Shire of Plantagenet advises due to dry seasonal conditions it will be extending its Restricted Burning Time (RBT) for both the Eastern and Western zones.

Restricted Burning will be extended to Midnight Tuesday 11 June 2024 for both the Eastern and Western Zones.

Lighting of fires without a permit attracts fines and may impact your insurance.

Please note:  The Shire of Plantagenet encourages landowners/occupiers carrying out any burning off activities on their land, with a permit, to please log these activities by calling Department of Fire and Emergency Services Communications on Ph: 08 9395 9209.  This will assist with volunteer resources unnecessarily responding to private Burns, mistaken as a reported fire.
