'Timely and measured response'

'Hard work' secures future of revenue raiser for Talbot's football netball club

Talbot Recreation Reserve Have your say

The future of the Talbot Caravan Park is now secure, with the facility to be re-registered for the next three years.

The park is situated on the Talbot Recreation Reserve off Avoca Road (pictured), the majority of which is Crown Land reserved for public park and recreation.

Central Goldfields Shire Council chief executive Lucy Roffey said the authority had been working closely with the Talbot Football and Netball Club to ensure its future.

Thanks to the "hard work" of the club, all health and safety obligations had now been fulfilled to make the park compliant with regulations, which was a credit to the club, park residents and the Talbot community as a whole, she said.

The council would now look to formalise management of the park through a contract lease agreement, under which the council would work with the operator to continue improving health and safety conditions and facilities available to park users.

An independent formal market rental valuation will also be undertaken to determine whether the council should seek ministerial exemption to negotiate directly with the Talbot Football Netball Club for the ongoing operation of the park

The caravan park, which is home to 11 permanent residents and offers pitches for casual visitors, is a major revenue raiser for the club.

It has installed lighting in communal areas, now ensures adequate space between caravans and dug trenches for electrical cabling.

It also engaged professional contractors to finish the work.
