We undertake fire inspections of the entire municipality annually. Starting dates may alter from year to year.
Our municipality is divided into 3 sections or areas for inspection purposes. Towns within these areas are listed below.
|Bell Post Hill
||St Albans Park
Our Fire Prevention Officers will endeavour to commence inspections in the North Area on 1 November 2021, in the Central Area on 15 November 2021 and in the East Area on 6 December 2021. You will need to ensure that your property complies by the appropriate dates and remains compliant.
Land owners who subsequently do not clear their property, may have it deemed as a fire hazard. They will then be sent a Fire Prevention Notice which is an official direction notice stating a date by which specified works must be completed.
Second inspections may commence from 22 November 2021. These are follow up inspections to ensure that all work required to be undertaken has been completed.
If the work directed to be undertaken has not been completed, a letter advising that Council is now engaging a contractor to undertake the work will be sent. This will incur a fee of a minimum amount of $241.
Failing to comply by the due date will also incur an infringement of $1817 for failing to comply with a Fire Prevention Notice (infringement amount as per CFA Act & FRV Act).
