Outside of the bushfire danger period
From 1 April, some properties are allowed to burn dry vegetation from routine garden maintenance as it is outside of the bushfire danger period.
In Moss Vale, Bowral, Mittagong and surrounding suburbs, burning is restricted to larger properties and less densely populated areas. In the villages and rural areas there are no property size restrictions.

Residents are urged to complete a Bush Fire Survival Plan and ensure all members of the household know what to do on days of increased fire danger and if their home is threatened by fire.
Residents should prepare their property by removing flammable materials from their yards, clearing gutters of leaves, checking hoses and, where appropriate, conducting hazard reduction activities.
