Open Air Burning Review

Project Update April 2020

Please note that due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Open Air Burning Policy Review (Local Law 17 Part 5A) has been placed on hold until further notice.

The health and wellbeing of our community and staff is our top priority. The decision to place this consultation on hold was made following advice from government and public health agencies to reduce risk for our community and staff.

Fire prevention and community safety remain a top priority for Council and we will continue to communicate these messages with our community where we can in this current COVID-19 climate.

We understand this may be disappointing and we thank our community for helping us to make Cardinia Shire as safe as possible.

If you have any queries regarding this consultation, please contact Council’s Emergency Management officer on 1300 787 624 or by emailing

Put it on the map

We want to better understand how open air burning impacts you and the places you live, work or like to spend time.

Place one or more markers on the map, then tell us about burning off issues or opportunities to do with those locations.
