Please visit the the Mornington Peninsula Shire’s website (http://www.mornpen.vic.gov.au/Your-Property/Fire-Emergency/Your-Land/Open-Air-Burning). This will let you know what you are allowed to burn off, when you are allowed to burn off, and whether you require a permit or not or any other restrictions.
As of 04/04/2018, the Fire Danger Period is set to end on 01/05/2018.
Please check the CFA website for any changes, as it can be extended or shortened at any time: https://www.cfa.vic.gov.au/warnings-restrictions/restrictions-during-the-fire-danger-period
The information sessions was an opportunity for the community to ask questions about the planned fuel reduction burn that is planned for this autumn.
Those on Maughan Road will be notified of the burn date by mail at least 1 week prior to the burn date, and will be door-knocked the day of the burn. It is important to note that the fuel reduction burn is also not guaranteed to go ahead on this day as there are a number of criteria that needs to be met on the day.

My children, husband and I undertook a bake sale for Bushfire Relief and wish to donate 1/3 of our takings to our local CFA. We will be donating the remainder to wildlife victoria and the fire authority in Eden, NSW. We are all very grateful for the work that you undertake.
