Incinerators and fires
According to the City of Stonnington Local Law 2018(PDF, 2MB), a person must not start a fire or allow it to remain alight on land or in the open air without a permit unless:
- that person is an authorised person by a Public Body engaged in fire protection measures
- the fire is in a barbecue.
An owner, occupier, or person in charge of land must not let their barbecue discharge ashes or smoke to an extent that is dangerous to the health of other people.
The owner and occupier of any land must not allow smoke to be emitted from a chimney that causes nuisance.
