Plan to ban 100 activities on Cottesloe beach

Plan to ban 100 activities on Cottesloe beach
September 23, 2010

Various media are reporting that beachgoers could soon be fined up to $500 for flying kites, using oversized umbrellas, taking commercial photographs or digging holes at Perth's famous Cottesloe Beach.

Under a proposal to be considered by the Town of Cottesloe this month, 60 clauses will be added to the council's beach law, banning a total of 100 listed activities at the famous beach.

According to Council officer's report, the current law lacks in certain areas and requires more specific controls over beach activities, the report stating "the increase in the popularity of the beach and the subsequent increase in the commercial and event usage of the beach and beach reserve have also highlighted the existing law is now inadequate to deal with certain demands and situations."

Under the Councilâs proposals obstructing steps and pathways, and wasting water by leaving taps running, would also be prohibited. Fines would range from $100 to $500.

Talkback radio in Western Australia has been following the issue with many callers saying the new rules being proposed were too strict, while others thought it would make the beach better.

After the council considers the proposal, the draft laws will be advertised state-wide for public comment.
