Getting Bushfire Ready - Verge Burning Permits

Weeds on a verge

It is great to see efforts already underway to be ‘bushfire ready’ we wanted to extend a ‘gentle’ reminder of the need to obtain a permit from the Shire to burn on verges (or other Shire reserves).  This is needed all year round.

This permit is easy to obtain from the Shire Ranger and does not incur a fee. Once the permit has been issued there are safety procedures that must be followed prior to or while conducting the burn such as:

  • Notifying the Shire prior to starting the burn
  • Notifying adjoining neighbours
  • Notifying DFES before commencing the burn 1800 198 140
  • Wearing suitable clothing
  • Not conducting burns in high winds
