Fire season is approaching, and Wyndham City would like to remind landowners to maintain their vacant lots

Long grass and rubbish can become fire hazards during the summer season between December and March.

To avoid fire risk, Wyndham City is reminding landowners that grass and vegetation on their property is to be kept at a maximum height of 150mm and all litter and flammable substances are removed.

Wyndham City recommends lot owners install temporary fencing around their property to mitigate rubbish.

Wyndham City will be conducting inspections over the coming months and fines may be enforced for those who do not comply.

”Ensuring your vacant lot is maintained and free from rubbish are simple steps you can take to keep our community safe this summer”
— Ludo Campbell-Reid

Wyndham’s Director of City Design and Liveability, Ludo Campbell-Reid said it was imperative that landowners do the right thing this fire season.

“It is really important for the safety of everyone that landowners maintain their property,” Mr Campbell-Reid said.

“Your help, understanding and compliance is critical in reducing the risk of fires starting and spreading within the area.”

“Ensuring your vacant lot is maintained and free from rubbish are simple steps you can take to keep our community safe this summer.”
