During the month of October 2014 it is the intention of Native Vegetation Management Services (NVMS) to carry out a controlled ecological burn within the Grassland on the corner of Maidstone St and Jordan close, Altona North (210-238 Maidstone Street Altona)
The intention of the proposed burn is to provide the opportunity for native flora to regenerate, reduce the fuel load which is present, minimise the potential of a wildfire and to impact upon the exotic flora species.
SEASON & TIMING:
October (Spring) 2014
Slight wind. Lighting up will only be undertaken in conditions which are deemed suitable including wind speeds of less than 5 knots, low fire hazard day, westerly prevailing winds and between the hours of 10am and 4pm when traffic is lighter.
A Burn Plan which consists of a Job Safety Analysis, OH&S Plan and scope of activities has been submitted to the council and we are now waiting for burn permit to be issued from Hobson’s bay city council.
As part of burning the site, all necessary safety steps will be taken to control the burning works
