Restricted Burning Period

Published on Tuesday, 30 March 2021 at 3:50:23 PM

Permits are required and are currently only being issued for the burning of stubble and chaff for crop preparation purposes for Primary producers.

Applications for permits must be made via the Shire of Toodyay’s website.

Holders of  permits must comply with all permit conditions which include  (but are not limited to) restrictions/requirements around burn notifications, minimum supervision and firefighting resourcing.

Please note: permits will not be issued for the burning piles of timber. During  this restricted burning period, the Shire of Toodyay will be issuing  permits for bona fide broad acre stubble operations for a period of up to 28 days to reduce re-application requirements for farmers with large operations.

Please be advised the Restricted Burning Period may be 
extended beyond April 30 dependent on weather conditions.

Please check the Shire of Toodyay website to stay up to date with the Restricted Burning Period.

Any changes will also be advised via the Shire’s Harvest, Vehicle Movement and Hot works Ban SMS system.
