Fire Management Notice 2023/2024

Protecting our community from bushfires is a shared responsibility, and we all need to work together to reduce the risk of bush fire. The Shire of Lake Grace issues a Fire Management Notice each year that contains the details of how landowners and occupiers must prepare their property for the fire season.

Depending on the size of your property, you may need to install and maintain firebreaks and reduce the amount of flammable material that is on your land.

All habitable buildings and critical infrastructure should be surrounded by an Asset Protection Zone that will help protect it from damage or destruction if a bushfire happens.

The fire mitigation measures required by the Notice must be in place by 1 November and maintained until 30 April (inclusive).

The Fire Management Notice is issued under section 33 of the Bush Fires Act 1954, and is a legal order issued by the Shire.
