End of Restricted Burning Period

The Shire of Capel has decided that due to the more favourable weather conditions, the Restricted Burning Period for this fire season will not be extended beyond the 10th May 2017.

As of Thursday, 11th May 2017, residents will no longer need to apply for a Permit to Burn to undertake burning off on their property.

Although conditions are more suitable for burning, the community is reminded that the ground is still very dry and there is still potential for fires to escape if they are not managed properly.

Please also be considerate of your neighbours and advise them before lighting to avoid any undue concern.
