Council will be undertaking works, with volunteer assistance, to clean up and burn the driftwood debris on the Main Beach south of One Tree point, Tuross Head
Two piles will be constructed, to be burnt at the earliest opportunity next week (Monday, unless onsite conditions dictate otherwise). This burn will be undertaken by RFS Volunteers under Council supervision. Council staff and a machine (positrack skid steer loader) will be present during the burn. Volunteers will be inducted onto the site and the site controlled with appropriate signposting and barricading.
Works to assemble the piles will start from the morning of Thursday 8th December with a Council representative and machine (positrack skid steer loader) present. Logs too large to be burnt will be placed at the foot of the vegetated dunes. The piles are to be constructed above the high-water mark. Volunteers from the public are welcome to assist under the direction of council staff (who will do an induction). It goes without saying that it is not appropriate for the machine and volunteers to work side by side. However there will be two piles so this can be done. Any timber that is too large to be moved by hand will be left for the machine. Pile works will continue until early Friday afternoon.
A letter drop will be undertaken to notify residents and businesses (caravan park) in the immediate area.
There will be a number of Parks and Garden staff involved on the ground. David Southwell will have overall oversight and can be contacted on 0408 206 244, or alternatively the Moruya Depot can be contacted on 4474 1391.
We wish to thank the Tuross Head Community who have actively and enthusiastically volunteered their services. Having a number of people doing an “emu pick” will make a huge difference to the outcomes with regard to this work.
