From Tuesday, April 3 the Shire moved into the Restricted Burning Period. However, at this stage, Permits to Burn are being issued only to Farmers for Pasture Burns.
Notice will be given on the Shire of Capel Website and Facebook pages to advise when the decision is made to allow Permits to Burn to be issued to all remaining landowners.
Permits to Burn MUST be obtained from your local Bush Fire Control Officer PRIOR to burning off.
Burning without a valid permit is prohibited and a penalty notice may be issued.
