'Considerable risk from coastal erosion'

Report puts seaside
park's future in doubt

Have your say

THE future of the caravan park in the small South Australian seaside town is in jeopardy

This follows Wattle Range Council's consideration of a consultant's report on the Southend caravan park, which is on Crown Land and under its care.

The private operator's lease will expire in August next year.

Meanwhile, there are fears the park could be at considerable risk from coastal erosion.

The consultant's report suggested it should be closed and the land handed back to the Crown, with a new caravan park being developed at an inland site.

But, it was pointed out, the financial viability of a new park was low and could be a "significant financial risk" for the council.

Councillors resolved at their recent meeting to authorise council officers to consult local community members for their reaction.

In addition, it was also decided to explore options for the ongoing management of the bush camping site and other available land in the town.

The council plans to organise a series of face-to-face meetings to obtain feedback from the local community.

It has also invited written submissions before June 14.
