General Meeting - Regional Fire Management Plan - Mar 21

8 pm, Uniting Church Hall, 56 Scrivener St, O'Connor

Speaker: Tony Scherl, Regional Fire Management Plan Project Coordinator, Fire, Forests and Roads, ACT Parks and Conservation Service, Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate, ACT Government.

ACT Parks and Conservation are developing the next Regional Fire Management Plan (RFMP) for the 10 year period 2019-2018. The RFMP consists of a series of maps, which describe all the proposed fire related works and fuel treatments on Parks and Reserves and lands managed by Parks and Conservation. This will include prescribed burning, physical removal, slashing and grazing as well as trail-related works amongst other treatments over the period. This is part of the preparation of the Strategic Bushfire Management Plan (SBMP) which covers the entire ACT by the Emergency Services Agency, and is reviewed on a 5-yearly basis. Several public consultation forums are planned for April 2019, however we are engaging with key stakeholders to explain the process and provide information before the formal consultation period commences.

Supper will be served at the conclusion of the talk.
