Slashing is to be performed prior to commencement of the Fire Danger Season each year. (Normally 1st December to 1st April)
The following standards apply:
Within 20m of any building, reduce all grass, pest plants and undergrowth to a maximum height of 10cm and maintain at that level until the end of the Fire Danger Season.
If the land is a vacant block under one hectare in area, reduce all plants, pest plants, flammable material and undergrowth to a maximum height of 10cm over the entire block and maintain at that level until the end of the Fire Danger Season.
If the land is over one hectare in area, establish and maintain a fuel break around the whole area, as near as practicable to the perimeter. The fuel break must be a 5m or 10m wide strip on which all grass, pest plants and undergrowth is reduced to a maximum height of 10cm, and must be maintained at that standard for the entire Fire Danger Season.
