A beach closure policy is one of the prerequisites for coastal local governments applying for a signage grant under the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development’s (DPIRD) new Beach Emergency Numbers (BEN) system. 

At the July 2018 OCM, Council resolved to advertise a draft version of the beach closure policy for a period of 28 days. That period has expired, with no submissions received. Thus, Council were requested to adopt the policy without modification.

It is hoped the Shire’s BEN application will be finalised in the near future so BEN signage can be installed before the summer months’ high tourist period.

At the 27 September 2018 Ordinary Council Meeting, Council adopted the Beach Closure Policy – 3.5, to be included in Section 3: Law Order and Public Safety of the Shire of Dandaragan Policy Manual.
