Redland City Council’s Parks and Conservation Crews are intending to undertake a hazard reduction burn of a section of bushland within the Greater Glider Conservation Area, 250-354 Redland Bay Road, Alexandra Hills.  See the green highlighted section on the map for the exact location.

The burn will take place between Wednesday 22 April and Friday 24 April 2020, depending on weather conditions over that period.

Preparation of the site is currently being undertaken, including clearing around significant logs and habitat trees. Some limited test burning may also be conducted.

All attempts will be made to limit any inconvenience and smoke hazards from the work. Stay safe in smoky conditions by following these tips from Queensland Health.

This 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 regeneration.
