Firebreaks & Bushfire Hazard Reduction

Firebreak & Bushfire Hazard Reduction Notice 2022/23

Firebreak Variation Application Form

Each year from 16 October, all landowners in the Shire of Chittering are required to have completed works on their property to ensure that both their firebreaks are compliant and the asset protection zone around all assets of value are fuel reduced. The requirements for each property are outlined in the Firebreak & Bushfire Hazard Reduction Notice sent out each year.

Firebreaks should be located as close as possible to the property boundaries. If for any reason it is not possible to comply with any of the requirements of the Firebreak and Bushfire Hazard Reduction Notice, you will need to apply for a ‘variation’. All variation requests must be received and approved by the Shire of Chittering before 1 October in any given year. Applications must be in writing and provide details or a map of the proposed alternative measures. If approved, the firebreak variation will form an individual notice for the property and remain in place until revoked or if the property is sold.
