  • Just seeing whether there was any update to the number of [bushfire] clean-up notices being issued?

Our fire prevention officers have just completed their first round of inspections for the fire season 2022–2023. This year they inspected approximately 2500 properties, both rural and residential.

For the fire season 2021–2022 we issued 525 non-compliant 105F notices in total. We aren’t able to break down these figures between rural and residential properties at this time.

For the fire season 2022–2023 we have, so far, issued 474 non-compliant 105F notices, with the second round of inspections due to commence next week.
