Anti-perv rules

TAKING photos and videos in the changing rooms at Beatty Park Leisure Centre in Vincent are set to be banned under new city laws.

Offenders would be smacked with a $500 fine under the proposed changes to the Local Government Property Local Law, which covers all council changing facilities across the city.

The city’s briefing notes to councillors didn’t suggest a spate of peeping toms, but a review of the law found it “did not expressly prohibit the use of recording devices”.

There was an existing workaround for changing rooms: they had “no filming” signs which carried a $100 penalty under a blanket law, the same fine if you got caught eating in the library.
