Community Forum

You are invited to a Community Forum to understand and respond to the 10/50 Vegetation Clearing Provisions.

These provisions allow property owners to remove all trees within 10 m of a dwelling, and all bush within 50 m.

This will have the potential to signi?cantly impact Pearl Beach.

The Progress Association has sought to bring a panel of views together to allow an informed discussion and to formulate a community response.

Bush Care Current Happenings

In September we went back to North Coral Crescent, in cooperation with Dunecare. We carried out remedial planting of acacias using long stemmed planting method and got stuck into Ochna, Yuccas and weeding around our previous planting. The site is looking good. We erred on the side of planting in areas with some shade cover in an endeavour to achieve a better survival rate. We also planted deeper following coaching by Anna from Council.

October 11th will be led by Malcolm and will be around the Lagoon. The date has been changed in order to fit in with the Firies Bushfire planning morning on the 4th. Targeted weeding plus morning tea lagoon-side. Assembly is at the Lagoon accessed adjacent to No. 83 Diamond Road.

November 1st will see us back at Paul Landa Reserve with some celebrations at end of session to recognise that this is our last session before Christmas. Also no meeting in January because of heat, snakes etc.
Note on Bitou: some dieback noticed on Bitou facing the sea on headland path; it apparently does not like seawater.
