Where are Fire Permits Required?

A fire permit is required during the Bush Fire Danger Period. The table below shows where the Bush Fire Danger Period has been declared and whether permits are required.

Please note that other restrictions, approvals and/or permits may apply to council areas where the Bush Fire Danger Period has not been declared. For example, backyard burning is not permitted in many suburban areas due to Environmental Regulations and Council permission is required.

If you have a permit, it is your responsibility to:

  • Check if there is a Total Fire Ban in your area. If there is, your permit is automatically suspended.
  • Notify and check with your local NSW RFS Fire Control Centre or Fire & Rescue NSW station whether permits are suspended.
  • Follow any restrictions listed in your permit.

The document "Before you Light that Fire" outlines the approvals that may be required before carrying out any burns. For more information on Fire Permits see Fire Permits and the Bush Fire Danger Period.
