Lighting fires

There is no bylaw preventing you from taking your own private gas barbecue to use on a reserve.

If you are considering using an open fire-type barbecue the following extract from the Reserves and Facilities Bylaw applies:

No person may light any fire in a reserve except in a place specifically provided by Council for that purpose, or with the prior written permission of an authorised officer.

Any person who lights or uses a fire in a place specifically provided by Council for that purpose commits an offence unless the fire is totally extinguished before the person leaves the reserve.
