Grassland Fire Risk Management Review on Properties Larger than 2.5 Hectares

Do you have a property larger than 2.5 hectares? We want to hear from you!

With the recent Wooroloo Bush Fire and an ever changing climate, it is important we continue to improve how we manage the bushfire risk. The City of Swan is now reviewing the management of grassed areas on private properties over 2.5 hectares.We will be working together with the community for input on reviewing the distance surrounding a fire break that the maximum grass height is applicable to ensure the ideal outcome is achieved, based on a balance between risk reduction and what is practically and financially achievable by landowners.
