'Reports of unacceptable behaviour"

Council decides to close Pinks Beach
RV Park despite positive online poll

Pinks Beach RV Park Have your say

SOUTH Australia's Kingston District Council has decided to pull down the shutters at Pinks Beach RV Park.

This follows an on-line poll in which 58 percent of 548 respondents voted to keep the park open.

The basic council-managed facility in its current form has provided up to five nights free stay since 2013.

Nevertheless, there have been reports of unacceptable behaviour such as overcrowding, large volumes of litter and power cords extending across the road.

In a statement, the council described its decision as "risk based".

But it had been made to make the location safe for all users and not impede nearby residents or people using the area to access the beach.

"Accordingly, council has decided to revert the location back to a public toilet, carpark and beach access facility only," it said.

"However, council recognises the value that free long-term RV camping has to the visitor economy and that it is a drawcard to another category of traveller.

"Council will therefore investigate the suitability of a facility on council-owned property adjacent to Cooke Street."

* UPDATE: The council is now looking into developing a new long-term RV camping facility at property it owns on Cooke Street, near the Kingston Golf Club. "We recognise the value that long-term RV camping has to the visitor economy and that without it, self-contained travellers might bypass Kingston," Mayor Kay Rasheed said. "This is a risk we simply do not want to take."
