Horse beach in limbo

Joondalup Weekender - - News -

con­firmed by the City at that time largely due to the risks of ex­posed rock out­crops and coastal ero­sion.

“How­ever, the City re­mains open-minded to the po­ten­tial for a horse beach to be lo­cated along its coast­line through the com­ple­tion of the City’s coastal man­age­ment plan, which will de­ter­mine the most ap­pro­pri­ate lo­ca­tion for fu­ture as­sets and uses along the coast­line.”

Mrs Roberts’ com­ments come af­ter the City of Joon­dalup’s lo­cal law to pro­hibit horses on a Hil­larys beach was over­turned last week.

Joon­dalup Mayor Al­bert Ja­cob told the Week­ender he was “keen to en­gage with the City of Wan­neroo to iden­tify suit­able ar­eas within the north­ern cor­ri­dor to host an­i­mal ex­er­cise beaches”.

“One po­ten­tial lo­ca­tion which I am ea­ger to ex­plore fur­ther with the City of Wan­neroo is at Catalina beach south,” he said.

Mrs Roberts said the City would work closely with the City of Joon­dalup, coastal coun­cils, the com­mu­nity and other stake­hold­ers to “en­sure the best out­come.”

Horses are wel­come again, but the City of Wan­neroo has still not picked a suit­able lo­ca­tion.
