Council officials developed the interactive map in response to burning policy changes in 2017. The map shows the entire shire divided into four color-coded blocks. Red zones are prohibited from backyard burning while green, yellow, and orange zones are allowed to burn with special permits. Residents learn the reasons for burning policies applied to their properties and required permits by entering their addresses in the search bar.
The Backyard Burning Policy Map attracted 1,500 uses in its first five months.
