Fires, burning off and smoke
Burning off of any type is not permitted unless a permit is issued by the Council.
If you witness a neighbour burning rubbish please call the Council 9932 1000. A Local Law Officer will investigate and if evidence of a fire is found a warning will be issued. If burning off continues a fine will be issued.
Grass and undergrowth on properties including vacant land must be cut to a height of no more than 155mm (six inches) all year round.
Smoke and Odours
Smoke and odours emitted from your property may be considered to be a nuisance e.g. fuel fired appliances that are not used and maintained correctly may produce smoke or offensive odour.
The Council is responsible for investigating and resolving nuisance complaints. Find out more about issues relating to noise, air quality and smoke.
