Council, in conjunction with the QFES Rural Fire Service, is planning to conduct a hazard reduction burn at bushland area at Aruma Street and Balaka Street, Macleay Island between the 10 September and 18 September 2015 (weather permitting). Planned burns reduce fire danger and provide conditions essential for native plant species regeneration.
Site preparations and limited test burning may be conducted in the days leading up to the burn.
For the safety of residents we request that you do not come out and watch the works. We also recommend that you secure any pets before the works begin to prevent them from becoming frightened. All attempts will be made to limit any smoke hazards.
If poor weather cancels this burn, it may be rescheduled to 2016. For further details contact Council’s Conservation Fire Management Officer on 3829 8456.
