RTRA TBNTT

Lancelin to be turned into a Car Park

08-Aug-2009

In the latest twist in the Lancelin Off Road Vehicle Area saga, the Gingin Shire carried a motion to declare both the Lancelin and Ledge Point Off Road Vehicle Areas as Parking Lots.

The rationale behind this move is to limit the hours of operation of the Off Road Vehicle Areas to between 8.00am and 7.00pm, thereby helping to alleviate the concerns raised by some residents about noise from the area at night.

The Control of Vehicles (Off Road Areas) Act does not enable these restrictions, but if the areas are declared as Parking Lots the local Shire can apply restrictions as to the time of use.

RTRA does not object to the imposition of reasonable time limits, but will be watching closely to ensure that the power to restrict access is not abused.
