QUAD BIKE USE WITHIN THE FORESHORE AREAS OF HINCHINBROOK SHIRE

Hinchinbrook Shire Mayor Ramon Jayo has said “The article appearing in the Herbert River Express concerning quad bikes on beach areas is totally erroneous and Council has no intention of allowing quad bikes on beaches in general due to the unacceptable nuisance this causes to residences and environmental issues associated with dune erosion and damage to infrastructure such as Groynes. Council is currently conducting a public consultation regarding Management of Foreshores and consultation to date has indicated that Quad bikes are unacceptable.”
 
“There may be areas of beach that may be able to be made available subject to environmental factors being addressed but those considerations will occur after discussion with relevant government agencies. It will not be permissible under any circumstances for quad bikes to be allowed to operate near or about residential areas. It should also be noted that under existing legislation it is unlawful for any unregistered bike to be in on or about any beach or any other public land adjacent beach areas.”
