It’s that time of the year again and preparations are now underway for another controlled burn in the compensatory habitat at the University of the Sunshine Coast
This controlled burn will help to reduce the fuel load and associated fire hazard risk and maintain the health of the vegetation community which contains rare and endangered plant species.
The area to be burnt this year is Area 2 which is just under 1Ha in size and shown below.
The first date for the burn has now been set for Wednesday 23rd of August (conditions dependant), with a back up option for Wednesday the 30th of August.
A decision to proceed with the burn will be made on Monday 21st August.
The planned burn will begin at approximately 9am and should be complete by 12pm.
Communications to University staff and students and adjoining local residents in Sippy Downs will be produced and delivered over the coming week.
If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact Gabriel McGhee directly.

This POLL is designed to measure usage of the 3 proposed solutions being explored by Cr Christian Dickson:
A. The existing loop back to University Way to exit the area with the addition of Traffic Lights
B. The one way Bus Lane to get through to Sippy Downs Drive to exit the area
C. The one way road to get through to Colombia St / Parkville Street to exit the area
All data is available LIVE one the poll is completed!
NB: We are also working on the exploration of all of the potential additional solutions raised by you, the community.
This poll in no way precludes more solutions being explored and delivered. The more solutions that can be delivered the better the overall outcome will be in reducing traffic congestion.
Following a lot of conjecture in the community about what is happening in relation to traffic & parking at Chancellor State Primary School (in Scholars Dr, Sippy Downs) and the overflow parking issues that plague the local community at pick up times for students, we arranged an interview with (Councillor) Cr Christian Dickson to see where he is at in delivering much needed solutions.
We urge all members of the community who may be affected by parking and traffic problems to watch this interview to ensure you are up to date with the current progress and fully aware of potential issues and possible action that may need to be taken to deliver real solutions.
