So the bad news is that having spent several months working on this the PT Government changed all the legislation in late July/early August which set us back a while but the good news is that the firebreak laws have been strengthened overall.

It's a bit complicated but I understand that the new rules are a firebreak of 50m around lone buildings & conglomerates of less than 10 homes more than 50m apart & a firebreak of 100m for conglomerates of more than 10 homes and/or closer than 50m apart.

If the owners of offending land can't be traced the first complaint & request to cut goes to the Camara & the second to GNR/SEPNA/GIPS (call 'em what you will) 30 days later.

I hope to put in my first complaint letter etc within a week or two so will treat that as a trial & we'll see what happens.

I rather suspect it'll put a few noses out of joint. lol!

This morning the government announced they are creating a new department to oversee the forests. Another minister, brand new car and associated hangers on and for what? What did the Environment Minister do to protect people and what will they do with all their spare time now.

Many here will know that we've been working for many months on a website to help people keep their lives & homes as safe as possible from events such as the dreadful wildfires that struck Portugal last year.

The site is launched today which is 10 months to the day of the Pedrogao Grande firestorm & you can find it at Portugal Wildfires - Protect Your Home & is considerably more detailed than I'd first envisioned & the reason for that is my better half (Susan) took one look at my idea, kicked it into touch & did it in her own inimitable & hugely efficient style.

You can dip in & out of it as you wish so if you just want the facts & procedures of getting trees cut & firebands maintained you can do that but if you want FULL details of the technicalities you can do that as well.

The site is undeniably complicated & technical but so are wildfires, the reasons behind them & the ways to protect against them so you have to accept that.

ALL thanks and appreciation should go to Susan & not to me. I just came up with an idea & she took my pigs ear & turned it into a fine silk purse.

So go check out portugalwildfires.com.
