Redland City Council’s Parks and Conservation crews along with the Queensland Rural Fire Service (Brisbane Region) will undertake a hazard reduction burn in a section of bushland within Don and Christine Burnett Conservation Area on Wednesday 14 June, weather conditions permitting.
The location of the burn area is 361-381 Avalon Road, Sheldon – highlighted in yellow on the map.
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 Avalon Road; Traffic Control 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.
Council recommends that people close their windows and doors and those who have a respiratory condition keep their medications nearby.
