Extension of Prohibited Burning Period

Pursuant to Section 17 (7) of the Bush Fires Act 1954, it is hereby notified that the Prohibited Burning Period within the Shire of Gingin has been extended until midnight on Sunday, 14 March 2021.

During this time NO BURNING is permitted for any reason. This includes open cooking or camp fires. 

Despite a bit of rain recently, weather conditions have remained relatively warm this bush fire season and fuel loads are quite dry still. There is a bit more rain forecast next week but it is predicted that it will not be enough to significantly dampen fuel loads. Consequently the decision was made to extend the Prohibited Burning Period an additional 14 days. 

Community safety remains the number one priority for the Shire. The Red Gully and Wooroloo bush fires this summer are reminders not to be complacent. With ground conditions still very dry, the Shire's Bush Fire Control Officers felt the extension was warranted.  

Further enquiries may be directed to the Shire of Gingin on (08) 9575 5100.
