Shire parks for ev­ery­one

Augusta Margaret River Times - - News -

The Shire of Au­gusta-Mar­garet River says rangers will not act on itin­er­ants who have be­come reg­u­lar fix­tures in the Mar­garet River CBD’s parks.

As­set ser­vices man­ager David Ni­chol­son cited in­clu­siv­ity in re­spond­ing to Times in­quiries.

“The Shire doesn’t ex­clude peo­ple from us­ing pub­lic fa­cil­i­ties on the ba­sis of age, place of ori­gin, so­cial eco­nomic sta­tus, etc,” Mr Ni­chol­son said.

“Itin­er­ants and youth are as wel­come to use Me­mo­rial Park as other mem­bers of the pub­lic.”

Mar­garet River po­lice pre­vi­ously said there was no role for of­fi­cers un­less crimes were sus­pected.
