Mayor Rattenbury has announced that Kambah Pool is going to be harder to get to at night if you’re into that sort of thing:
In an attempt to reduce ongoing vandalism and antisocial behaviour at Kambah Pool, gates to the
recreation area will be closed overnight from 1 July 2013, Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, Shane Rattenbury, announced today.
“From Monday 1 July 2013, the access gates on Kambah Pool Road to the recreation area will be closed to vehicles on a nightly basis,” Mr Rattenbury said. “During non-daylight savings time the gates will be closed from 6 pm to 8 am and from 9 pm to 8 am during daylight savings time.
“While there has been ongoing issues at this site, over the last few years vandalism of recreational assets and anti-social behaviour including the dumping of rubbish, lighting fires and racing cars has been increasing.
“A recent example of destructive behaviour in the area involved the use of a chainsaw to cut down trees and damage walking trail bridges, the cost of which to repair was around $8,000.
