Rodney local board chair Brent Bailey has called for greater government action to prevent tragedies on Muriwai Beach in West Auckland. He believes that councils need more powers to limit access to beaches and make rules around access, speed limits, and managing behavior. Bailey highlighted the difficulty of managing access to the beach due to its large area and multiple entry points. He also emphasized the need to control access and only allow licensed individuals for legitimate reasons, as unsupervised access can be dangerous. Bailey also mentioned the need to protect the sensitive coastal area from vehicle damage.
