- Without a permit a person must not light a fire in the open air on land which is less than two hectares in area, unless the fire is lit to use:
(a) a barbecue for the purpose of cooking food providing the activity does not cause a nuisance to any person; or
(b) a trade tool for its designed purpose.
- A person must not place or use an incinerator on any land.
- A person must not burn any object or material so as to cause a nuisance to another person.
- A person must not light a fire in the open air on a declared smog alert day.
