A hazard reduction has been scheduled off Tamworth Street, North Arm Cove. The intention is to have the burn completed sometime within the next month. As soon as ground and weather conditions allow we will commence. We will do a letter drop for residence that are close to the burn area a few days before the burn.

The brigade has been up at the proposed area carrying out mitagation work around the perimeter in preparation for the burn.  

Notice of proposal and map attached.

Chanel 9 investigative reporter Josh Bavas spent 2 hours on Tuesday with NACCAi's Fame Cove Action Group team leader Len Yearsley in preparation for a Current Affair report on Fame Cove - expected to be broadcast this Tuesday at 7:00pm.

In the meantime, the four Fame Cove lots are privately owned by Tea Garden Farms Pty Ltd.
