Phase 2 of Burning Bylaw Consultation Now Underway - Proposed Bylaw Changes

With the summary of public feedback (available here: What We Heard) in hand, staff have drafted new guidelines for open air burning in Central Saanich.

The Draft Guidelines, include:

  • that burning not be restricted by day of the week, but by whether atmospheric conditions are favourable for burning (based on the provincial venting index).
  • new definitions for open air fires (aligned with provincial definitions) and are accompanied by restrictions around when and how they can occur.
The Fire Chief was able to meet with 40 farmers during the Agricultural Topics open house at the Central Saanich Fire Station on May 28, and received excellent feedback about agricultural burning needs.
