UPDATE 9 November 2020
Third Step restrictions apply across Victoria. The same restrictions apply in regional Victoria and metropolitan Melbourne.
From Wednesday 21 October 2020 metro residents who also own property in Mansfield Shire, as a last resort, may apply to Council for a letter of support to travel to the area to conduct works to reduce fire or flood risks to their property.
Property owners are encouraged to use local contractors or businesses to prepare their second properties.
If you are unable to do so you can only travel if you have been granted permission via a letter of support from Council.
To apply for permission to travel to your property to undertake specific fire or flood prevention works you must complete the application form.
Council will be processing the letters during normal business hours and aims to issue the letters as soon as possible. Email is the preferred method of delivery to speed up processes.
