Each year Tasman Council is faced with the time consuming task of dealing with potential fire hazards. This involves inspecting and arranging for the removal of fire hazards throughout the municipality. When fire hazards are confirmed Council has no alternative but to issue abatement notices in accordance with Division 6 of the Local Government Act 1993. Failure to comply with abatement notices will result in the land being compulsorily cleared at the owner's expense.
Council strongly urges all property owners and occupiers to reduce their and their nighbouring properties by keeping their land clear from undergrowth before it dries out and becomes a danger. This property maintenance should continue until at least the end of March each year.
For further information or to obtain a fire permit for your property please go to www.fire.tas.gov.au or contact the Council on 6250 9200.
