Fire and Burning Information Booklet
All ratepayers in the Shire of Mundaring have been sent the Fire & Burning Information Booklet (one per household) with their Rates Notice. Please refer to this booklet for more information on burning periods. Designed for long-term use, the new booklet will no longer be re-sent annually as it has been in previous years.

Going forward, a replacement booklet will only be sent to ratepayers should major changes occur to fire information and legal requirements. For this reason, the Shire advises that residents keep the booklet enclosed with their Rates Notice or refer to the online version.

The Firebreak and Fuel Load Notice 2020-2021 will still be sent annually with your rates pack.
