Bushfires-Deek's Run restoration
(Question No 505)
Mr Stefaniak asked the Minister for Urban Services, upon notice:
In relation to the use of Deeks Run and Deeks Walk in the Stromlo pine plantation:
(1) What is the Government doing to restore Deek's Run to full functionality?
(2) What schedule is the Government using to restore Deek's Walk?
(3) What is the scheduled cost?
Mr Wood: The answer to the Member's questions is as follows:
(1) This area was part of the pine plantation that was burnt on 18 January 2003. ACT Forests is currently harvesting any saleable burnt logs in this area. It will also start chipping some of the debris in Deeks Forest Park in mid April.
Clean up operations will continue in Stromlo for a few months. It is unsafe for the public to use these areas until ACT Forests has finished its clean up operations.
Any decision on rehabilitating Deeks Run will not be made until after the Non Urban Land Study and the Spatial Plan review are completed.
(2) It is unsafe for the public to use Deeks Walk until the clean up operations are finished. Any decision about rehabilitating Deeks Walk will be made after the Non Urban Land Study and the Spatial Plan review are completed.
(3) It is premature to estimate the cost of rehabilitating Deeks Run and Deeks Walk until the clean up operations and the reviews have been completed.
