The burn will be conducted in bushland between Lakes Road, Teranca Road and Minilya Parkway at the rear of Peel Health Campus.

People are reminded to drive with extreme care, follow speed restriction advice, or avoid the area if possible.

In the interests of safety, the public must not visit the burn area for any purpose during or after the burn.

The burn is expected to take place over two days and the exact date will be subject to weather conditions.
