We are currently in a Fire Danger Period until 1 May 2021
The Rural City of Wangaratta is prone to bushfires. As a result, there are restrictions around when and what you can burn off. You may also need a permit to burn off.
Burning off in a residential area
- Restrictions exist year round in township areas. This mean you can only burn off outside the Fire Danger Period and you must obtain a permit. The application fee for a permit is $75.00.
