Fire permits suspended in the shire

The Wollondilly/Wingecarribee Bush Fire Management Committee (BFMC) has agreed that permits to burn within the Wingecarribee and Wollondilly Shires will be suspended and issued permits cancelled effective Thursday, September 13.

Exceptions will remain for carcass destruction on a case by case basis.

The conditions remain non-conducive in many areas across the Wingecarribee Shire and Wollondilly Shires to the safe conducting of pile burning at this time.

Agencies will however continue to explore opportunities to carry out Hazard Reduction works as conditions permit.
