Jet Ski Marine Exclusion Trial

Consultation has concluded

* This consultation has now closed*

The Department for Planning, Transport and Infrastructure has granted an activity licence to Council to restrict motorised vessels in an effort to increase the safety for swimmers using beaches in Councils most heavily used areas.

The trial, which ran from 1 December 2013 to 31 March 2014, restricted motorised vessels, including jet skis, from operating within 200m of the shoreline just between Grange Road and the River Torrens Outlet at Henley Beach South. The restricted areas were between the Torrens Outlet and the Grange Road junction, where totem sea eagle sculptures are clearly visible from the ocean at 200m.

The restricted area was monitored regularly by Department for Planning, Transport and Infrastructure Marine Safety Officers with the support of Council staff.

We are now seeking community comment on the trial. Continuous feedback will be accepted through the trial duration.
