Laws for Burning in the Open 14 June 2019
If you burn without a required permit you will be breaking
the law and will be fined $300, under section 34 of the
Environment Protection Act 1993, by Council compliance
staff or South Australia Police.
Burning in the open is a common practice to reduce the risk of bushfires, manage agricultural land and to dispose of agricultural and forestry wastes.
To obtain a permit from the Town of Gawler fill out the EPA Burning Application Form.
