Olhão council has issued a statement reminding citizens that those who do not clear their land by 15 March could face fines.

Owners of properties in rural areas have a little over a month to clear their land, in a new measure aimed to combat forest fires, which is compulsory for all, or face hefty fines. A 50-metre band around the property must be cleared, as well as a 10 metre unobstructed strip to either side of the property for access.
