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.

Selling or giving away a cat or dog - The rules have changed
You play a critical role in providing for the welfare of cats and dogs that you sell or rehome. This information will help you to meet your responsibilities.
As of 1 July 2019, people advertising kittens, cats, puppies or dogs for sale or to give away in NSW need to include an identification number in advertisements. The identification number can be either:
- a microchip number, OR
- a breeder identification number, OR
- a rehoming organisation number.
The advertising requirement applies to all advertisements, including those in newspapers, local posters, community notice boards and all forms of online advertising, including public advertisements on websites such as the Trading Post, Gumtree and social media sites.
The changes help people looking to buy a cat or dog search the NSW Pet Registry to see the animals:
- whether it is desexed
- Whether or not it is already registered.
A breeder identification number search will also display any business name listed in the registry.
This enables buyers to do further research and make informed purchasing decisions. It also helps to promote responsible cat and dog breeding and selling and, over time, enable enforcement agencies to use this information to identify ‘problem’ breeders to enforce animal welfare laws.
