Crackdown on illegal camping

More than 100 infringement notices have been issued during the holiday period as part of a crackdown on illegal camping.

Clarence Valley Council rangers have been patrolling along the Clarence Valley coast since the week before Christmas, with fines being issued to people staying in parked vehicles outside of permitted hours at a variety of locations between Iluka and Wooli.

These patrols will increase in frequency over the remainder of the holiday period to reduce the adverse impacts of illegal camping on our communities.

The penalty for parking outside of permitted hours is $117.
