Council’s Conservation Unit is intending to undertake a hazard reduction burn of a section of bushland between 17 March 2015 and 17 April 2015, dependent on weather conditions at the time.
The location of the burn areas are highlighted in red on the map. The total area of the burn will be two hectares, for hazard reduction as well as ecological purposes.
Preparation of the site will be undertaken in the week prior to the burn and will consist of clearing around significant logs and habitat trees. Some limited test burning may be conducted during this time.
It is appreciated that this burn may cause some inconvenience, however, all attempts will be made to limit any smoke hazards from the work. The planned burn is necessary to reduce the volume of forest litter fuel, which will assist with hazard reduction. Planned burns assist to reduce the fire danger and provide conditions essential for native plant species regeneration.
If you require further details of the planned burn, contact Council’s Conservation Fire Management Officer on 3829 8456.
