Burn Permits 

All property owners in non-settlement areas must obtain a Burn Permit prior any open air burning at their property. Open air burn permits cost $10.00 per property and are valid from January 1st to December 31st. Please note that Clearview By-law #14-06 outlines the times and locations that fire may be set in open air and the precautions to be observed by persons setting such fires.
Burning is permitted using a fire appliance by permit in the settlement areas of Nottawa, New Lowell, Creemore and Stayner. Both By-law Enforcement and the Fire Department can enforce and lay fines for open air fire offences.
To determine if your property is within the boundary of one of the settlement areas or if you have further questions, please contact Clearview Fire and Emergency Services at (705) 428-6230 ext.401
To obtain a burn permit, residents of Clearview Township must obtain an application at the Clearview Township Administration Office located at 217 Gideon Street, Stayner ON.  For more information, call (705) 428-6230 ext.401
