Fire and flood preparedness permits

Fire and flood preparedness permits

During the travel period, Melbourne property-owners need to abide by metropolitan lockdown restrictions, which include no visiting friends or local caf├ęs.  Strathbogie Shire Chief Executive Officer, Julie Salomon, said the permits are not an opportunity to escape the Melbourne lockdown and enjoy a long weekend.  "While we encourage efforts to reduce bushfire risks, and respect landowners' rights to protect their assets, we need to ensure we maintain a COVID-safe environment," Ms Salomon said. "We are grateful to our community who have been so compliant, and we expect those travelling here to do the same." In response to the Victorian Government announcement that paved the way for the permits, the Shire has created an online form, available on the Shire's website, through which applications can be submitted. Our Flood Plan helps identify properties that may be affected quickly.  For anyone finding it difficult to undertake fire or flood preparedness action, the Shire encourages seeking out local contractors or the assistance of neighbours, family or friends.  For more information and details about how to apply, click here.
