Balaklava Caravan Park: meeting a need

Council feels a 'strong duty'

Park opens $96,000 disabled cabin for public inspection

Have your say

LOCALS were today inspecting SA's Balaklava Caravan Park’s newest addition - a $96,348 cabin fully fitted for disability access.

An 'open morning' hosted by Wakefield Regional Council Mayor Rodney Reid allowed the community to peek inside the new addition and have a look around the park, which continues to be a major asset for the region.

Cr Reid said plans for the new cabin came about when a local resident pointed out a general lack of wheelchair-friendly accommodation in the region.

"The resident had friends with disabilities who wanted to stay overnight but there was a real lack of wheelchair accessible accommodation," he said.

"Council was surprised to discover this was the case, and so felt a strong duty on behalf of the community to provide accommodation with disability access in our region.

"One of the council's main functions is to promote our region as a great place to stay – but if a lack of suitable accommodation prevents people from doing that, we are overlooking a big issue.

"Building more accessible accommodation will allow people with disabilities to visit Wakefield region with greater freedom and participate more fully in our community and events."

Cr Reid said the opening was a great opportunity for those curious to see what the inside of the cabin is like – what it had in comparison to neighbouring cabins.
