Burning Green Waste
Under Environment Canterbury’s regional rules, since 2008 outdoor burning in the residential zones of Waimate is not permitted unless resource consent is obtained. However, due to the large amount of green waste created by the recent wind storms, Environment Canterbury has advised that they will not be enforcing the outdoor burning rules up until 24 December 2013 – subject to the following conditions:
1. Those wishing to burn under these conditions notify the Waimate District Council prior to undertaking a burn.
2. Only green waste resulting from the wind event is burned.
3. The burning creates no offensive or objectionable effects beyond the boundary.
If complaints are received, and should the burning continue to be a nuisance problem, then Environment Canterbury may need to revise this position.
Pursuant to the Local Government Act 1974 NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Waimate District Council, for the purpose of permitting the Waimate Strawberry Fare Committee to hold the Waimate Strawberry Fare, will close the following Streets to ordinary vehicular traffic for the period indicated hereunder.

Saturday 14 December 2013
From 7.00am to 4.30pm
