Collection of Firewood Permit

The collection and removal of firewood from roadsides requires the approval from council under the Local Government Act 1999. The Southern Mallee District Council Roadside Vegetation Management Plan 2006 details conditions for removal of firewood within road reserves. Applications to remove fallen timber (eg. for firewood collection) will only be approved for fuel reduction purposes. Permits will not be granted on Category A, B & C Roads. So as to avoid damaging habitat for wildlife (eg. reptiles) and small native plants adapted to and protected by the sheltered conditions provided by fallen timber. Permits given to collect firewood for fuel reduction purposes on Category D and E roads, should require that care be taken not to damage any surrounding native vegetation.
