You can only renew fire permits in the new permit system if the original permit was issued after 23 September 2019.
Under the Canterbury Air Regional Plan, if your property is less than 2 hectares, you can't burn outdoors (unless you're cooking). If your property is 2+ hectares, you can burn outdoors if conditions are met. Anyone undertaking crop residue burning needs a smoke management plan.
