The Ecological/Fuel Reduction Burn Program is a key tool in the management of native grasslands.  The plan is for the burns to occur in spring this year. These burns are dependent on weather. 

If residents experience smoke in or around their home they should shut their windows and turn off their air conditioners.  Council apologises for any inconvenience experienced during the burns.

Prior to the burn, information signs will be in put place and Council staff will notify residents in nearby properties.

For further information, please do not hesitate to contact Craig Dodson (Area Leader Conservation) on 9742 0777.
