Shire of Kalamunda sends reminder about restricted burning period

SHIRE of Kalamunda wants to remind residents that the Restricted Burning Period is in effect from April 1 to May 31.

Shire president Andrew Waddell said the Restricted Burning Season has been extended due the soil dryness index.

“This will be reviewed over coming weeks and as conditions become more favourable permits will be issued again.”

“Details relating to this will be published on the Shire of Kalamunda website and residents who would like more information are encouraged to call on 9257 9999.”

This notice is given pursuant to the powers vested in local government under Section 18 of the Bush Fires Act 1954 as amended.

Restricted Burning times may also be varied due to seasonal changes.

The Shire displays Fire Danger Rating information on display boards throughout the Shire and its website – which is based on the forecast weather conditions and provides advice about the level of bushfire threat on any given day.

This information is also updated daily on the Bureau of Meteorology and Department of Fire & Emergency Services (DFES) websites.
