A prescribed burn of the Compensatory Habitat, near Bainbridge Circuit is scheduled for Wednesday 1 July. This is to help reduce the intensity of any subsequent wildfires and provide favourable conditions for heath and forest regeneration. The sections to be burnt are Areas 4 and 5 as marked on the map below.
The burn is planned to commence at 9am and complete by 3pm and be undertaken by Officers of the Rural Fire Service Queensland. Access to the Compensatory Habitat will be restricted during the burn.
If the weather conditions are not favourable, the burn will be rescheduled for either 8 or 15 of July.
