Prohibited Burning Period Commences 2 December 2017

Due to the rapidly drying and warmer seasonal conditions, the Shire President and Chief Bush Fire Control Officer jointly have determined that as from 2nd December 2017, it will not be safe to burn off within the Shire of Capel.

As such, burning off is prohibited from midnight 2nd December 2017.

Persons who undertake burning off during the Prohibited Burning Period will risk being issued an infringement notice ($250) or being prosecuted, depending on the extent of the offence.

If any one has any questions regarding this notice and how it may impact on them, please do not hesitate to contact the Shire’s Community Rangers.
