Mel Levy started this petition to Waverley Council (General Manager of Waverley Council)

SAY NO to Amalfi Beach club's proposal to Waverley Council to reserve a section of a part of Bondi Beach for paying customers for financial gain

  • On an ordinary pre-Covid day in Summer, Bondi is packed to the hilt, with approximately 40,000 people visiting the beach so reserving even 2% of the beach space (if this is even accurate) displaces at least 800 from the beach in favour of a handful of the elite who can afford it
  • Add to this COVID where social distancing will already reduce the number of people who can visit the beach during summer, and the fact that most people will now need to stay local, this proposal is quite simply un-Australian.  
  • People were already turned away from Bondi on the labour day weekend as the beach was too crowded this isn't even the height of summer
  • While Amalfi's "proposal" seems to change daily, the original business case/proposal indicated the cost will be approximately $80 per person for 2 hours and was targetting top income earners.  Waverley Council did reject this proposal and have advised that a DA is required. Regardless the beach should remain free for everyone. There is only one party standing to gain from this proposal and it's the Amalfi Beach Club.
