In addition to caravan parks, this legislation also governs other camping issues. People found to be camping in locations where they have not sought permission of the landowner face infringements or the possibility of prosecution. For land owned or vested in the Shire of Manjimup, unless prior approval has been granted, the penalty for a successful prosecution is up to $1,000. Signs indicating as such have been or currently are being erected in problem areas.
