Planned burn scheduled – Wednesday 28 July 2021


Redland City Council’s Parks and Conservation crews along with Brisbane Region Rural Fire Service will undertake a planned burn in a section of bushland within the Bayview Conservation Area, Redland Bay on Wednesday 28 July 2021, weather permitting.

The location of the burn area is 273-305 Days Road (highlighted in yellow on the map below).

The burn is expected to occur between 9am and 4.30pm on Wednesday.

Due to the size of the burn area, Council officers will return on Thursday 29 July to continue the burn, if required, and to monitor the area which has been burned.

The purpose of the burn is to reduce the volume of forest litter fuel, which will assist with hazard reduction – reducing the fire danger and providing conditions essential for native regeneration.

There will be a half road closure to a small section of Sugargum Avenue, and a traffic control crew will be on site.

It is appreciated that this burn may cause some inconvenience, however all attempts will be made to limit any smoke hazards.
