Canungra residents are advised that dispersal activity relating to the flying fox roost in Lions Park will occur during the early hours of the morning from Tuesday 19 July to Friday 29 July.
This will occur between 3:30am and 8am for a period of four consecutive days. These operations will involve the use of noise, smoke and light as deterrent methods resulting in nuisance within the roost site and surrounding areas.
Residents are advised not to disturb the flying foxes if they attempt to land in their property and to contact Council immediately. If they are disturbed prematurely this is detrimental to dispersal efforts.
For further information regarding dispersal efforts, residents are encouraged to contact Council's Environmental Policy and Services section on 5540 5111.
