The Shire of Chittering winter unrestricted burning time commences on Tuesday 1 June 2021.

See here for the DFES Burn Smart Guide to help you burn safely and effectively this season: https://www.dfes.wa.gov.au/plannedburning/documents/DFESWN0152-Burn-Smart-Guide---Web-Low-Res-2.pdf 

A Shire permit to burn on your property is not required during this time.

For the protection of the community, please take care when carrying out any burning activity.

Please minimise smoke nuisance to neighbours by not burning green or wet vegetation. General rubbish and waste must not be burnt at any time.

Ensure the wind direction does not cause smoke to drift over roads causing a hazard to passing traffic.

It is an offence to cause a smoke nuisance to persons and to cause pollution with excessive smoke.
