Firebreak Orders

As a measure to control and/or prevent the spread of bush fires within the Shire of Gingin, all owners and occupiers of land within the Shire's district are required to clear firebreaks and maintain those firebreaks during a specific period which occurs from November to May annually.

Firebreak Orders are posted to home owners in approximately August annually following the commencement of the new financial year. If home owners do not receive a copy then a copy may be downloaded below or alternatively, visit the Shire's Administration Centre in Gingin or the Lancelin Office to collect a copy.

*Note - there is a small typo on page 7 of this year's Fire Break Orders. The sentence "You must also maintain a water supply of 25,000L for every 5 ha of plantation or part thereof" should read 50 ha - not 5 ha.
