Call to stop beach works

Efforts by community members to repair access to storm-damaged Belongil Beach has raised the ire of the Department of Lands.

The department’s general manager, Graham Harding, has called on the community to stop any unauthorised works to restore pedestrian access to the beach..

Mr Harding said the department had started a project to reinstate the pedestrian access point off Childe Street.

“The department understands that some community members have been undertaking unauthorised works to restore beach access,” he said.

“The community should be aware that it is illegal to carry out works on Crown land without authority.

“It is unsafe and inappropriate for this activity to continue as the unauthorised works may not be safe for beach users.”
