Sutherland Shire Council has made no move to close oceanfront car parks at this stage despite concerns about the number of people attracted to the area on the weekend.
A spokesman said on Monday evening the council "continues to monitor crowd numbers at our popular beaches, parks and open spaces and to work with relevant agencies to manage crowd numbers and behaviour where warranted".
"Council continues to urge all local residents to do their bit to keep our community safe by adhering to the Public Health Orders in place, with the latest updates available via lead agency, NSW Health".
A meeting of the council's Local Emergency Management Committee, which includes senior police, Fire and Rescue NSW and health officials, is due to discuss the situation tomorrow (Tuesday).
Earlier on Monday, mayor Steve Simpson said he would suggest closing the car park at Don Lucas Reserve, Wanda, which was "packed over the weekend".
Sutherland Shire Council is considering closing Cronulla's oceanfront car parks after crowds descended on the area over the weekend.
The council will also ask the state government to review public health orders regarding exercise for residents in locked down local government areas (LGAs) such as Georges River.
At present, residents of these areas are restricted to shopping and exercising within five kilometres of their home.
This means people living near the southern boundary of Georges River can legally cross into the shire via the Como-Oatley, Alfords Point and Captain Cook bridges.
Sutherland Shire police last week "discouraged" shire residents from walking or riding for exercise into the locked down LGAs of Georges River and Canterbury-Bankstown.
Sutherland Shire mayor Steve Simpson said the five kilometre rule for locked down LGAs was "ridiculous" and the council would raise the matter with the state government.
Cr Simpson said he understood police had to "move on" about 100 people from the Como Pleasure Grounds.
Cr Simpson said the council was also concerned about large gatherings at Cronulla.
"The beaches are a mecca, and Don Lucas Reserve at Wanda was packed over the weekend," he said.
"I am suggesting we close the Wanda car park, and we will be talking about that and the other beach car parks today (Monday).
"We don't have the power to close the Como bridge."
Cr Simpson said there were two sources of people movement in the shire.
"There are some people coming into the shire from other LGAs, but there are also shire residents travelling unnecessarily to Cronulla," he said.
"They should be exercising and shopping close to their homes."
