Hazard reduction burn planned
A HAZARD reduction burn in Byron Bay's Arakwal National Park will be undertaken over the next three weeks.
National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) Byron Coast Area Manager, Sue Walker, said the burn in the north-western corner of the park would help reduce the risk to neighbouring properties especially in the Paterson and Evans Streets area.
Tallow Beach Road will be closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic and as a result there will be no access to Cosy Corner.
The Milne Street walking track will also be closed.
This is one of many hazard reduction burns that will take place in national parks.
