Permit required to light any fire

A restricted fire season is in place.  
You must have a fire permit before you light any fire in the open. This includes rubbish fires, incinerators, braziers, outdoor fireplaces, coal and wood-fire cooking, paper lanterns etc.

A total fire ban applies to all summer camping areas and beaches. The only exceptions are gas cookers and BBQ. Permits can take up to 3 business days to issue.
