With the number of new COVID-19 cases dropping each day and people beginning to wonder if it’s time to come out of iso life, many areas are continuing to expand lockdown areas.

In consultation with the Richmond Police District, Ballina Shire Council have closed the Pat Morton (Lennox Point) and Lighthouse Beach carparks from until further notice.

Recent monitoring by the NSW Police has identified these two locations as problem areas that are attracting people from outside the Ballina Shire who are not adhering to the current NSW COVID-19 Public Health Order.

These two carparks are primarily used as lookout points, and Council is hopeful these closures will not impact local residents doing the right thing.

Ballina Shire Council would like to reassure the local community that access to local beaches, pathways and other car parks will remain open to support community members wanting to stay active during this challenging time.

Residents using the beach to exercise to walk, swim, surf, run or fish, can continue as long as they comply with social distancing requirements. We remind residents that other typical beach activities, such as sunbaking, are not permitted.

Potential Ballina Shire visitors are also reminded that non-essential travel, including holiday visitation, is not allowed under the current COVID-19 restrictions.

Ballina Shire Council will continue to take all necessary precautions to keep the community and staff safe during this crisis.
