The City of Rockingham requires all land owners to comply with the City's Fire Control Notice by 30 November each year.
If, for any reason, it is considered impractical to clear firebreaks or to remove the flammable material from your land as required by the Fire Control Notice, an application must be made in writing to the City's Emergency Services Team on or before 14 October for approval to provide firebreaks in alternative positions or take alternative action to abate the fire hazard, e.g. slashing and mowing.
If permission is not granted by the City's Emergency Services Team, you must comply with the requirements of the Fire Control Notice in its entirety.
To assist ratepayers to install firebreaks and/or slashing, a list of contractors is available below.
Please note, it is the owner's responsibility to ensure firebreaks and/or slashing are completed prior to 30 November each year.
