Over the past few days I have noticed that white Lady Finger Orchids are blooming all over the Cove. Two areas where there are lots are along the roadside on The Ridgeway, and in the bushland on the western side of Cove Boulevarde just before The Esplanade.

Now is a good time for everyone to be thinking about preparing for the approaching bush fire season. For those in the community that may require or need assistance to prepare their home, the AIDER program may be able to assist.

The program helps people live more safely and confidently in their home in areas where bush fires may start, and aims to support our most-at-risk community members.

The attached map shows properties, roads and zoning in both the North Arm Cove village and the surrounding non-urban area west to Goorengi Road.

It also shows land owned by MidCoast Council and land owned by developer Walker Corporation.

The map also shows roads which are privately owned and provide access to other properties through easements or rights of way.

The bushland that we see around the cove now is open forests and woodlands that has regrown...
