Three beaches to be closed

6 April 2020

Mayor Tom Tate has just announced that as of midnight Tuesday, the Spit, Surfers Paradise and Coolangatta beach will be closed.

"The beaches are proving to be magnets for day visitors from Brisbane," he said.

"The balance of beaches will remain open for our residents so they can continue to exercise.

"However, we will monitor that situation and if we see groups starting to gather at those beaches, we will have to close those as well.

"We are working through the finer details now including having parking officers redeployed to The Spit to monitor illegal parking up there

"We didn’t want to get to this, but the weekend showed me that a small number of people aren’t listening."
