Extension of Prohibited Burning Period

Published on Wednesday, 23 February 2022 at 9:44:51 AM

The Shire of Cuballing, in accordance with Section 17 (7) of the Bush Fires Act (1954), has extended the Prohibited Burning Period for 14 days to 15 March 2022.  The Restricted Burning Period would now commence on 16 March 2022. 

Fire Control Officers in the Shire believe that the seasonal conditions are such that delaying the commencement of the prohibited burning period is justified.  DFES supports the decision. 

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Chief Bush Fire Control Officer, Mr Anthony Mort, on 0429 898 214 or me on one of the numbers below.

Chief Executive Officer
