Northern Beaches Council Closes Beaches for Public Safety

Source: Northern Beaches Council
Posted: 23 Mar 2020
Due to the large number of people gathering in a public areas, Council moved to close some of the beaches and reserves yestoday (Sunday 22nd March).

We are continually monitoring and while current closures include the ones below, this changes hourly, so visit the website for the latest updates.

Currently closed are:

  • Dee Why Beach and reserves
  • Freshwater Beach and reserves
  • Long Reef Beach
  • Manly Beach (south end)
  • North and South Curl Curl
  • Palm Beach

Mayor Michael Regan said the closures are in line with the Federal Government’s social distancing rules to restrict outdoor gatherings of more than 500 and exercise 1.5m spaces between people.

“Council has been closely monitoring the number of beach goers all day and our lifeguards have been proactive in making announcements to reinforce the health and safety rules,” Mayor Regan said.

“It seems a lot of people haven’t got the message that we need to change our behaviour.

“We are trying to keep our public spaces open but we need the community to support us and follow the Federal Government rules, otherwise we have no choice but to act to ensure everyone’s health and safety.

“We will keep a close eye on the beaches and parks that remain open and will close other public areas if people don’t follow the rules.

“We are grateful for the coordinated and swift response by the Local Area Command, Surf Life Saving Northern Beaches and our local chambers of commerce, who together with staff are out working with the community and local businesses to help them comply with the rules.

“We are all in this together and every single person has a role to play. I ask everyone to consider the safety of themselves and others by avoiding public places especially ones they know will be busy, today and for the foreseeable future.”

Council will continue to monitor and make necessary changes as required throughout today. We will continue to provide regular updates though social media and our website.
