Public Service Announcement
CCTV - Safer Street CCTV Program
The installation of the CCTV network in the Narromine main street is now complete. Please be aware of the additional street surveillance. These cameras have been made possible through the NSW Community Safety Fund.
Narromine Shire Council wishes to advise that under Schedule 8 of the Protection of the Environment Operations (Clean Air) Regulation 2010 that all burning of any materialis prohibited within the Narromine Shire except with approval.
- this is not applicable to any burning off as a result of an agriculture activity. E.g. burning off of stubble, etc.
- that failure to obtain a permit and/or comply with the requirements with the permit may result in an on-the-spot penalty notice of $550 being issued.
- should the Fire Authorities deem that the open burning, including Bonfires, is a risk to the property or public safety then the fire maybe extinguished.
- that under the Protection of the Environment Operations (Clean Air) Regulation 2010, a person who burns anything by open fire or in an incinerator must do so by such practicable means as are necessary to prevent or minimise air pollution.
Considering the potential impact on not only the amenity of the immediate neighbours, the community as a whole and on the environment, it should be noted that Council is unlikely to approve any application to allow for an open burning (burning off) to occur particularly within the boundaries of the towns or villages within the Narromine Shire.
All enquires in regard burning off in town and/or village areas should be directed to Council’s Community and Regulatory Services on 6889 9999. All enquiries in regard to areas outside the township & village areas (rural) should be directed to the Orana Office of NSW Rural Fire Services on 6881 3900.

Replacement of Tom Perry Park Tree
The large eucalyptus tree in Tom Perry Park is reaching the end of its life and must be removed for public safety. In it’s overmature and deteriorating condition, the tree has unfortunately obtained a fungal disease which cannot be treated, which is affecting the structural integrity of the tree.
The tree will be removed in mid January and will be replaced with a more suitable Japanese Elm, known as a Zelkova ‘Green Vase’. This tree has a high drought tolerance, is fast growing up to 14 metres and will have a high tolerance to pests and diseases so that shade can be provided in the park for years to come.
Replacement of trees near Fitness Equipment, Culling Street
Three eucalyptus trees are scheduled to be replaced in mid January surrounding the Culling St fitness equipment. After an assessment of the trees, it was determined that the trees are both over mature and in poor condition due to uneven pruning of branches for the roadway, fungal diseases and trunk splits, resulting in the instability of the trunks. Due to the location of the trees, they will be removed and replaced for public safety.
The eucalypts will be replaced with three native frangipani trees more suitable to the location to provide shade and aesthetics to the area. Once mature, these trees will provide a safe canopy up to 6 meters tall, with glossy green leaves and creamy yellow flowers.
