draft beach closure policy

The Shire of Dandaragan invites comment on the Draft Beach Closure Policy. This policy has been drafted as it is one of the prerequisites for coastal southwest local governments to apply for a signage grant under the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development’s (DPIRD) new Beach Emergency Numbers (BEN) system.

The BEN system, named in honour of fatal shark bite victim Ben Gerring, is a coding system designed to improve emergency response times by installing signs with unique numbers at beach access points. These signs will provide specific location information which is vital when emergency services are deployed in the event of a shark sighting, bite or other beach emergencies. In December 2017, DPIRD launched a grants program to provide financial assistance to local governments who wish to introduce emergency response signs along beaches with public access.

Comments on the draft policy below may be submitted to the Shire in writing or electronically on or before 4.00pm Friday 31st August 2018.

If you have any queries in relation to this matter, please do not hesitate to contact the Planning Officer on (08) 9652 0800 or rorym@dandaragan.wa.gov.au.
