Open up Pretty Beach

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - LETTERS -

FIRSTLY, con­grat­u­la­tions to Friends of Dou­glas Shire for their de-amal­ga­ma­tion achieve­ment. Se­condly, I’d like to ask the new coun­cil to re­move the bar­rier rocks at Pretty Beach. Ve­hi­cle ac­cess was re­stricted some time ago af­ter a sin­gle com­plaint. The bar­rier rocks have not stopped campers and only man­aged to re­strict pub­lic free­dom and en­joy­ment of this spot. The rub­bish mat­ter could be eas­ily rec­ti­fied by a bin and sig­nage ask­ing vis­i­tors to keep the area clean for the ben­e­fit of all. Dog poo bags could be added for the dis­posal of hu­man waste. This way free­dom and qual­ity of life are not di­min­ished by the ex­ag­ger­ated fear of disease by a few.
