Consultants to prepare master plans
Coast's ageing caravan parks set for spruce up
Have your say
QUEENSLAND'S Fraser Coast Regional Council
plans to spruce up its popular caravan parks.
New offices/manager's residences, wider internal road, and larger sites
are among the key elements of master plans for Pialba and Torquay
Cr Jade Wellings, pictured, said the council had
engaged SGL Consultants to prepare master plans for parks at Burrum Heads,
Scarness, Torquay and Pialba to ensure they were commercially viable and
met current standards and visitor expectations.
"The existing infrastructure in the parks is ageing and needs replacing
and the parks need upgrading to suit modern 'vans, especially RVs," she
"The plans for the Pialba and Torquay parks, which were adopted at the
April council meeting, focus on improving the safety and comfort of
guests, changing the layout and site sizes while also improving access
from the Esplanade."
Cr Wellings said the plans were adopted following feedback from residents,
businesses and park users.
"An online survey was conducted, and we received 906 submissions of which
key elements for change included larger sites and upgrading park
amenities," she said.
The master planning project has moved to the next phase and detailed civil
and building designs are being prepared.
It is anticipated that the Pialba and Torquay redevelopment projects will
be completed by late 2025.
The project will be delivered in multiple successive stages to ensure that
the parks can remain open in sections as work progresses.
Funding for the staged redevelopment of the four beach front parks has
been allocated in the council's 10-Year Capital Works Program.
