Information regarding the Franskston Council Local Law for burn offs can be found by accessing their web page http://www.frankston.vic.gov.au/Local_Laws_and_Safety/Fire_Safety/Burning_and_Permits/index.aspx
I have pasted some information from their website below
Frankston City Council receives many complaints about open air burning in the municipality. Open Air-Burning is regulated by Local Law No. 7, part 3.10. Open Air burning laws are in place to protect the amenity of the neighbourhood along with its general air quality, and to reduce the risks associated with fire.
Residents and other land users should always look for alternatives to burning off to reduce the impact upon others. Even if the burning off is legal, you should always consider the needs of others and ensure that any
impact of the fire is minimal.
No person may light, or allow to remain alight, a fire in the open air unless a permit to burn has first been obtained from the Council's Fire Safety Officer for the purpose of fuel reduction or fire hazard clearance. The owner or occupier of land where a fire has been lit without a permit must immediately take all steps necessary to make it safe and completely extinguish the fire. A person must not light, or allow to remain alight, a fire in a public place unless authorised to do so by a public body for the purpose of undertaking fire protection measures.
Permits to burn are provided to residents for the sole purpose of fuel reduction or fire hazard clearance, but only in limited circumstances.
Residents living in residential zoning are very unlikely to obtain a permit to burn.
For more information before applying for a burn permit, please consult Frankston City Council's Customer Service on 1300 322 322 (1300 FCC FCC).
