A quick guide to outdoor burning in Otago

An outdoor fire, whether it be in a brazier, a rural and controlled burn off, or a hangi, must comply with Otago Air Plan rules. Please remember that just because you have acquired a permit from  Fire and Emergency NZ or your local council, it does not necessarily mean your burning is permitted under Otago Air Plan rules.

We’ve produced a quick guide for anyone who wants to know if their outdoor burn is permitted.
