Clump Point Burn
Council is conducting a small planned burn at Clump Point, Mission Beach in conjunction with Girringun Rangers, as part of the annual hazard reduction/ conservation management program for parks and forests.
These works will begin Wednesday 29 July 2020. It is anticipated individual sites will be treated within five days, weather and site conditions permitting.
Neighbouring areas within close proximity to the site may experience smoke and decreased visibility. Persons with respiratory or other health problems should seek medical advice on mitigating the effects of smoke inhalation.
Smoke can decrease visibility on the roads and across water, so it is important that motorists and boaties use caution when travelling around these areas.
Access to the boat ramp will remain open to accommodate the general public however Clump Point lookout will be closed. CCRC will have smoke hazard signs in place until operations have ceased.
Council is working in partnership with relevant community groups, Traditional Owners, QPWS, DNRME and Rural Fire Service, with permits from QFES to complete these important works.
Council is committed to minimising the impact of the program on the community as much as possible and would like to thank the local community for their patience and understanding during these works.
