Storm-affected residents need to register with BRV by 31 October

Published on 07 October 2021

Macedon Ranges Shire Council encourages residents who were impacted by the June storm, and whose property is eligible for the Bushfire Recovery Victoria (BRV) Residential Storm and Flood Clean-up, to make sure they register by 31 October.

Registrations for the program will be closing at 11:59pm on Sunday 31 October 2021.

The cut-off date is for new registrations only. If you have already registered and are waiting for a call-back, site assessment, or works to begin, this cut-off date does not apply to you.

To find out more about the clean-up program, call 1800 560 760 or visit the Bushfire Recovery Victoria website.

The initiative, known as the Residential Storm and Flood Clean-up program, has been accepting registrations since early July 2021.

Tony Grimme, Municipal Recovery Manager, said residents across the shire are still feeling the effects of the June storms and encouraged people to register before the 31 October cut-off.

“If you were impacted by the June storm, make sure you register now so you can take up the assistance being offered. Once you have registered, a BRV representative will make contact to discuss how the program works.”

Mr Grimme said inter-agency partnerships have been an important part of the ongoing recovery process.

“We would like to thank Bushfire Recovery Victoria for their ongoing support during the clean-up and recovery, and acknowledge the work they have done with many local property owners.”

“There is still time for Macedon Ranges Shire residents to register, and I encourage them to do so,” he said.
