Amendments to 10/50 code

Recent adjustments to fire boundaries will not protect any Beecroft or Cheltenham trees because the changes are to Category 2 boundaries, whereas our suburbs are Category 1.

A community environment day meeting is being held on Saturday 25 October, 11:00 am to 1:00 pm, at the Beecroft Memorial Train Park. Tree and fauna loss due to 10/50 will be a principal topic.
There is a map showing the existing boundaries at
Apparently Councils will now have the ability to reclassify smaller parcels of vegetation from category 1 to category 2, further reducing the entitlement area, but by the time this gets done many more trees will have gone.
