Reporting a bushfire hazard

If you are concerned about a bushfire hazard on private or public property, contact the NSW RFS Northern Beaches District office on 9450 3000 or log online on the RFS website.

Once you raise a request, the RFS Community Safety Officer will complete a site visit and advise the resident and Council if works are required.

10/50 vegetation legislation

It is crucial that our bushland and native trees are protected and retained on private properties in order to preserve our beautiful natural environment for the future.

Under 10/50 legislation some clearing of vegetation is allowed if your property is mapped in the 10/50 entitlement area.

However, you must fully comply with all required conditions for your property or penalties apply.
