Township of Huron - Kinloss
At the September 19, 2016 Council Meeting, Township Council passed a new Open Air Burning By-law. The new Open Air Burning By-law has some notable changes over the previous version of this by-law. The new changes are:
- No person shall offer for sale or ignite and set a Flying Lantern within the Township of Huron-Kinloss
- Recreational Fires that are 1 meter by 1 metre are allowed anywhere in the Township and do not require a permit.
- All recreational fire must be in an Approved Fire Pit.
Beginning in January 01, 2017:
- All Open Air Fires are required to have an annual permit issued before an Open Air Burn can commence
- All Open Air Burn permits must be applied for and will cost an annual fee of $10.00
- Open Air Burns are prohibited in all Settlement Areas, except recreational fires that are 1 metre by 1 metre
- Once a permit is issued, the permit holder must notify the Fire Department within a reasonable amount of time prior to igniting any fire.
The set fines for offences under the new open air burn by-law are $250.00.
For further information on the new Open Air Burning By-law regulations please contact Fire Chief Chris Cleave, by calling the Township Office during regular business hours. (519) 395-3735 ext. 164.
