Fire restrictions to begin in northern Hindmarsh, Yarriambiack
The Fire Danger Period will commence in the northern section of the Hindmarsh Shire Council and Yarriambiack Shire Council areas on Monday.

From 1am on Monday 30th October Fire Restrictions will be in place for the area described as:
Hindmarsh Shire Council
That part north of the line described by the following: Sanders Road, Netting Fence track, Netting Fence Road easterly to Perkins Road, Pullet West Road, Pullet East Road and Galaquil West Road [formerly known as the wire netting fence]

Restrictions will come into effect in the northern section of the Yarriambiack Shire Council area at the same time:
Yarriambiack Shire Council
That part north of the line described by the following: Galaquil West Road and Galaquil East Road [formerly known as the wire netting fence]


Fire Danger Period information:

  • A written permit is required to burn off grass, undergrowth, weeds or other vegetation during the FDP. This permit may be issued by the Municipal Fire Prevention Officer or the CFA District Office. Please check with your municipality in the first instance.
  • Lighting a fire in the open without a permit is an offence and can bring a penalty of over $21,600 and/or 12 months imprisonment. Barbeques and fires for cooking and warmth do not require a permit, but must be lit in properly constructed fireplaces (to view complete conditions visit cfa.vic.gov.au/can)
  • The use of an incinerator, chainsaw/lawn mower, welding/grinding equipment and vehicles that come in contact with vegetation and machinery with an internal combustion/heat engine are permitted provided conditions are followed.
  • Farmers can find legal guidelines and practical advice at cfa.vic.gov.au/farming – this information is important especially for new farmers, bush block owners or hobby farmers.
  • A Total Fire Ban declaration means no fires can be lit for the declared district for that day unless there is a specific exemption or special permit issued. This applies irrespective of the Fire Restriction status for a given municipality. Further details at cfa.vic.gov.au/can
