Permits to Burn

Permits to burn are only available during Restricted Burning Times.

Fire Control Officers are not obliged to issue permits and they may advise on alternatives to burning.

Please remember Fire Control Officers are volunteers and their availability to issue permits may vary, assist them by planning in advance.

Permits cannot be issued over the phone and should a Fire Control Officer refuse to issue a permit, it is a breach of the Bush Fires Act 1954 to request a permit from another Fire Control Officer.
