Planned burn in Mt Cotton – Wednesday 1 September 2021

Redland City Council’s Parks and Conservation crews will undertake a hazard reduction burn within Heinemann Road Conservation Area, Mt Cotton on Wednesday 1 September 2021, weather permitting.

The burn area is located in a section of bushland off 277-293 Heinemann Road (highlighted in yellow on the map below).

The burn is expected to occur between 8.30am and 6pm on Wednesday.

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 Balthazar Circuit, and a traffic control crew will be on site.

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