You will require this permit if you intend to collect or remove firewood from council land or roadsides. Firewood collection areas are designated by your local council and in some areas, firewood collection is only permitted in Autumn (1 March - 30 June) and Spring (1 September - 30 November).
A licence defines the need to obtain recognition / certification and registration to undertake a certain business activity.
Collection of domestic firewood must not commence until a written permit is issued and appropriate fees are paid, and must be carried out in compliance with all Acts, Local Laws and Regulations and the conditions, set out in the permit.
