Caves ac­cess in­put sought

Augusta Margaret River Times - - News -

The Shire of Au­gusta-Mar­garet River is ad­ver­tis­ing changes to lo­cal laws that will re­strict pub­lic ac­cess to Abo­rig­i­nal caves on the Mar­garet River. The changes are de­signed “to pro­tect the en­vi­ron­men­tal and her­itage val­ues of the Wall­cliffe Cliffs and sur­round­ing area”. The amended law would also des­ig­nate boat-land­ing points along the river.

The move fol­lows dis­quiet about dam­age to trees and caves from vis­i­tors.

Pub­lic sub­mis­sions close on June 22.
