Have your say!
The Golden Plains Shire Council in Victoria are calling for submissions and feedback on their draft local law No2 that may well enforce their already strict policy on the use of motorcycles on private property including land zoned as rural.
If not passed, this means your child(and yourself) will require a permit to ride their PW50 on your own 50 acre lot along with being restricted to a maximum two hours per day.
This includes battery power motorcycles
An extract from the Golden Shire Plains Facebook post
“Council’s Draft Local Law No. 2 is currently out for public feedback, and we want to know your thoughts on the proposed changes, including on use of motorbikes on private land.
Council receives a large number of complaints relating to their use on private land, the noise made, and the amount of time they are being used. Under the current Local Law, a permit is required for any recreational use of a motorbike on private land. The new Draft Local Law No. 2 would allow residents in Low Density Residential Zones and Township Zones to use a motorbike for one hour per day without a permit, and residents in Rural and Farming Zones to use a motorbike for recreation purposes for up to two hours without a permit.
Protect your lifestyle
Whether or not you if live in the Golden Plains Shire we think is it imperative land owners and riders remain united against such over bearing laws being placed on rural properties.
Be sure to read the information and provide council with your feedback.
Submissions close 11.59am, 22 September 2020.
