The end of the Victorian Fire Danger Period last month means eligible land-owners now need to obtain a Permit to Burn from Mildura Rural City Council before burning off.
A Permit to Burn is required to burn off on properties within the irrigation area of the municipality. No burning off is permitted on residential or commercial properties.
Eligible land-owners can apply for a Permit to Burn by phoning Council’s Customer Service Centre on (03) 5018 8100. Due to the current social distancing measures associated with COVID-19, permits can only be obtained by phone.
Failure to apply for a permit, or breaching permit conditions may result in penalties for land-owners.
