Hi
I have noticed signage stating that from the 1st December 2020 there will be a 3hour parking limit to the whole foreshore to botany bay. the limit is enforceable, I suspect the council will be inundated with complaints once people receive the fine. 3hour for windsurfing will be a challenge as we know sometimes the wind is not up yet so we do wait around on occasions over an hour for wind then rig which may also take time and sail and rest breaks in between sometime we could be out for 3plus hours.

I understand councils decision to implement the parking limit, to allow a greater turnover of beachgoers during peak times. Limited info on councils' website of how it will work and if there will be ticket machines.

So be aware from 1st December 2020 this will change how we plan our sailing days, get in and get out. i will feel restricted now sailing and always thinking of the time and not enjoying the days' activity.

What are your thoughts, will this limit you sailing days.

Kind regards
Walt

Should apply to summer Sundays, which have become impossible, and it should be 30 minutes if you have a jetski.
We can always swap places ?

If they enforce it as well as they enforce dogs on the beach we should be okay.

The council will drive by & photo number plates so the rangers won't even get out of the cars .
Totally no effort required and a guaranteed revenue raiser so they will get everyone all the time.
Unlike the dogs .
I'm sick of ALL councils .
They don't service the community anymore.

We need George Costanza to move our cars around all day.

Yesterday the foil event was on longer then 3hour. Will this parking limit now affect all events on botany bay, or will permits be issued for organised events this could get out of control and be paper nightmare for the council. At northern beaches at picnic area there is pay for parking I think it is all day about $45.00 however if you are a rate payer of the local council you receive a permit I could only imagine this may be implemented in the future. Whatever the future direction it will only result in restrictions and deminish the thrill of an outing to the beach. I will be sending an email as the windsurfing shed suggested with my considered point view demonstrating how windsurfing is not out of the bag sport it takes time to set up hopefully they can appreciate this view.
Kind regards Walt
