Notification of Planned Burn – Dakabin Landfill

Moreton Bay Regional Council’s Fire Management team is intending to undertake a planned burn in Dakabin Landfill Station adjoining the RSPCA during the months of March to May. The proposed dates will be dependent on weather conditions at the time. The burn will take one day to complete, and crews will continue to monitor and patrol the burn area for several days afterwards.

Residents who wish to receive further notification about this burn will need to register for MoretonAlert. Residents who have subscribed to the MoretonAlert system will receive a SMS text and/or email notification the day before the burn proceeds. To register, call council on (07) 3205 0555 or register through the council website at: www.moretonbay.qld.gov.au/moretonalert

The burn site will cover approximately four hectares. A map of the proposed burn area is available at: www.moretonbay.qld.gov.au/plannedburns. Prior to the burn date, preparation work will be undertaken to clear around significant logs and habitat trees and to maintain the network of fire trails.

The planned burn is required to reduce the volume of forest litter fuel, thereby reducing potential bushfire hazards. Such burns also assist in providing conditions essential for native plant species regeneration.

Council understands that smoke generation may cause some inconvenience however, all attempts will be made to limit any adverse impacts on nearby residents.

If you require further information please do not hesitate to contact council’s Fire Management Officer, Bruce Bunkum, on (07) 3205 0555.
