Community Consultation has now closed
Thank you to everyone who took provided feedback on our Local Law 17 - Part 5A in relation to Open Air Burning throughout November 2019.
Some of the key themes to come out of the consultation include:
- Smoke impacts on community
- Restrictive timeframes
- Burning off in townships
- Alternate methods of green waste disposal
- Environmental impacts of burning off
All feedback received is currently being reviewed internally, and a draft revision to the local law is being developed. The draft local law will be presented to Council in early 2020 before its 28 days of statuary consultation.
The community will be invited to provide additional feedback on the draft local law during the statuary consultation period.
The next project update will be provided in February 2020.
