As of 1am on Monday 23rd December, fire restrictions came into effect across the Macedon Ranges Shire Council and Hume City Council municipalities. Residents from Riddells Creek and the surrounding areas are reminded that burning off in the open air without a written permit from the council is now prohibited. Unless removed earlier, restrictions will be in place until 1 May 2014.
In addition to the regulations relating to burning off, there are also a number of other restrictions that apply during the coming summer months and details relating to these restrictions can be found in a copy of CFA’s Can I or Can’t I guide.
