Public Exhibition: Draft Open Pile Burning Policy

Pile for burning

In accordance with the resolution of Central Coast Council on the 23 October 2017, the Draft Open Pile Burning Policy has been placed on public exhibition to seek feedback from the community in order to create consistency in open pile burn processes for residents of Central Coast Council.

Currently, open pile burning is permitted within the former Wyong Local Government Area. The former Gosford City Council publicly exhibited a Draft Open Pile Burning Policy however was never adopted.

In consultation with the NSW Rural Fire Service, a self-regulated approval process for pile burning is proposed to consolidate the provisions of the former Councils. The Draft Policy enables a self-regulated approval process for pile burning and permits landowners in rural communities who meet the prescribed conditions to burn vegetative waste generate on their land parcel.

  • E2 Environmental Conservation

  • E3 Environmental Management

  • E4 Environmental Living

  • RE2 Private Recreation

  • RU1Primary Production

  • RU2 Rural Landscape

  • RU6 Transition

  • 7(a) Conservation

  • 7(c2) Scenic Protection
