Open Air Burning Review

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
  • Penalties

Next Steps

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.


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.
