The Punchbowl Reserve is part a fire managed area and the Launceston City Council (LCC) has in place a bushfire hazard management plan.
This includes a burning program for fuel reduction. This is not undertaken every year.
The Reserve also comprises of maintained lawns and open park land.
The surrounding reserve area is therefore classified as MANAGED LAND and BAL Level is LOW.
The LCC has the prime responsibility to maintain appropriately the native and scenic protection values of the Reserve and not to find unnecessary bureaucratic requirements because of there own deficiency in resource management or giving prominence to conflicting government outcomes.
