Fuel reduction burn

Peppermint Hill Spring Fuel Reduction Burn

In conjunction with the Derwent Valley Council, the Parks and Wildlife Service intends to undertake a fuel reduction burn, this spring, within the Peppermint Hill Reserve as shown on the map below. 

This is part of the Statewide Fuel Reduction Program aimed at reducing the bushfire risk to help protect lives and communities.

During burning operations the Peppermint Hill Refuse site will be closed and public access to the Peppermint Hill Reserve will be restricted.  Tracks in the Peppermint Hill Reserve will also be closed.

This burn will occur at short notice under suitable weather conditions and will generate smoke and flames. Residents should not be alarmed. Please comply with directions from staff or on any signs. 

A copy of the Peppermint Hill Operational Burn Plan will be on display at the Council Chambers in New Norfolk.
