Restricted Fire Season now in place

Thursday, December 02, 2010

With the continuing dry weather conditions the South Taranaki District Council will be imposing a Restricted Fire Season from midnight Monday 6 December 2010, in all rural areas of the South Taranaki District.

A restricted fire season means that a fire permit is required for all open air fires, and all residents need to be aware that if they light a fire without a permit, the full costs of extinguishing these fires will be charged to the property owner.

These restrictions shall remain in force until rescinded by a public notice in local newspapers.
