Shire's Prohibited Burning Period starts early

Published on Friday, 1 December 2023 at 2:11:02 PM

Due to unseasonal weather conditions, the Shire of Dardanup’s Prohibited Burning Period has been brought forward two weeks to today, Friday, 1 December 2023, in accordance with the Bush Fires Act.

This means that all burning in the open is prohibited until 14 March each year, but this is subject to change.

Section 17 (7) of the Bush Fires Act 1954 enables Local Government to vary the Prohibited Burning Period due to seasonal conditions.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the Shire of Dardanup Ranger Services on (08) 9724 0307.
