Prescribed burn at Greenhill on Private Land

Date posted: 19 Oct. 2020

A prescribed burn is planned at Upper Slape Gully – Greenhill, tomorrow, Tuesday 20 October 2020, weather conditions permitting.

  • The prescribed burn will start at 12 noon and should be complete by 7 pm.
  • It will affect about 38.1 hectares of private land.
  • Walking tracks along and off Coach Rd will be closed. There will be no road closures.
  • Coach Road, Ridge Road and Greenhill Rd may be impacted by smoke.

The burn will be carried out by NPWS as part of the Mt Lofty Ranges Fire Co-operative prescribed burn program. Local CFS brigades have been invited to attend.

This burn aims to reduce the significant risks of bushfire impacting on numerous dwellings along Coach Road and in Greenhill. It is part of a statewide program of prescribed burning planned to protect communities and assets at risk.
