Request a Variation

What is a Variation?
A Variation is an exemption to the conditions outlined in the notice.

Do I need a Variation?
If you consider for any reason that it is impractical to clear firebreaks or other hazards as required by the Fire Hazard Reduction Notice, or if natural features render works unnecessary, you may apply in writing to the City of Kalamunda or its duly authorised officers, not later than 1 October, for a variation listing alternative methods of fire prevention on your land.

A variation is only valid for the current season. If a property requires a variation, applicants are required to apply every year before the 1st October.

A variation belongs to the applicant. If a property is sold or has new tenants, the current variation becomes void. The new owner/tenant has 14 days to notify the City and apply for a new variation. The new variation is assessed based on the new application received. The City may not automatically approve a variation based on a previous application.

Variations may be withdrawn at any time by the City of Kalamunda Chief Bushfire Control Officer (CBFCO).
