Emergency Preparation permit applications no longer required
Melbourne-based landowners with property in the Surf Coast Shire will no longer need a permit to visit their homes in the shire. However, emergency preparedness activities, such as getting your property ready for fire season or preparing for risk of flood is still important at this time of year.
Advice on how to prepare your home for the summer fire season is available here.
Surf Coast Shire Council is very much looking forward to once again welcoming our Melbourne community members and we are grateful to everyone for being patient and kind and for striving to do the right thing to keep our vibrant Surf Coast community open and safe.
