A burn permit is required if you want to burn leaves, tree clippings or other similar materials as outlined in schedule A of this bylaw. A burn permit issued under this section shall require compliance with all applicable provisions of this bylaw and any additional restrictions deemed necessary to protect the health and safety of the public.
- The size of any pile of materials to be burned cannot exceed 9 square metres (96.84 square feet) in area and 2 metres (78.75 inches) in height unless specifically approved under application of a burn safety plan.
- Fires shall be located at least 30 metres (98.43 feet) away from any building, combustible structure, combustible vegetation, accumulation of combustible materials, or as measured on the ground horizontally from any overhead wires carrying electricity and property lines. In any case, longer distances may be required if, in the opinion of a municipal law enforcement officer, the material burned will emit sparks and embers in a manner that could create a fire hazard.
