Pile for burning

Central Coast Council has adopted its amended Central Coast Open Pile Burning Policy after consultation with the NSW Rural Fire Service, NSW Fire Brigade and coast community.

The Policy will allow landowners of large properties generating large volumes of dead and dry vegetation material that was generated on the premise on which the vegetation grew within prescribed zones to open pile burn in accordance with the Protection of the Environment (Clean Air) Regulation 2010.

Council made a number of amendments to the initial policy including a community education program in collaboration with NSW Rural Fire Service and the inclusion of environmental zones based upon their land management needs.

Council will seek to replace former Gosford and Wyong Councils as the approval authority for the burning of dead and dry vegetation under the Clean Air Regulation (2010) before the Policy is implemented.
