THROUGHOUT July and August, the Department of Defence in conjunction with the Rural Fire Service will conduct light hazard reduction burns at Beecroft Weapons Range.
The burns will reduce the risk of a bushfire on the headland and surrounding areas.
The Department of Defence plans to do the hazard reductions burns on weekdays, however dependent on the weather, burns may need to be conducted over a weekend.
Weather conditions will be assessed each day and the Beecroft Weapons Range will be closed to public access while the burns are going.
It is anticipated that overall the range will be closed for no more than five days during the period.
If members of the public have any inquiries they can phone the rangers’ station on 4448 3411.
