Variation to Firebreak Orders

If you consider you cannot clear firebreaks as required by the Firebreak Notice, you may apply in writing to Council requesting permission to provide firebreaks in an alternative position or take alternative action to comply with the Firebreak Notice.

Look at alternative ways to keep your firebreaks clear, spraying early will save you time and money when it comes time to clear the firebreak area.

For further information on Variation to Firebreak Orders, refer to the Shire's current Firebreak Notice. The Shires Ranger services will be able to assist you through this process.
