Planned burn scheduled – Friday 14 August 2020


Redland City Council’s Parks and Conservation unit will undertake a hazard reduction burn in a section of bushland within the Emu Street Bushland Refuge on Friday 14 August 2020, weather conditions permitting. The location of the burn area is 58 Hillcrest Road, Sheldon – highlighted in yellow on the map.

The purpose of the burn will be to reduce the volume of forest litter fuel, which will assist with hazard reduction.

Preparation of the site will be undertaken in the days leading up to the date of 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. Planned burns assist to reduce the fire danger and provide conditions essential for native regeneration.
