Notice of Environmental Burn

A low intensity burn is proposed at Hillview Estate Reserve at Napoleon Reef on Saturday 22 May, subject to operational programming and weather conditions. This will consist of the controlled burning of vegetation to improve the diversity of flora in this reserve. The burn will also reduce bushfire fuel and assist in reducing the intensity and adverse impact of bushfires in extreme weather conditions. There is potential for smoke to impact surrounding residents and roads. A letterbox drop will be conducted to notify surrounding residents of measures to prepare their properties.
